Umm... dressage was interesting? I got 12th/12. Due to the general tenseness of the ride got a marked down a lot, and Fi was so nervous she wouldn't free walk, just put her head up and jigged. Also I couldn't seem to get her to stop counterbending, another one of her things she does when she's nervous. I am happy with it though, she's doing so much better since January when she wouldn't walk at home without jigging and whenever she got nervous she'd break into the canter and do tempis xD So any progress is good, and I kind of expected her to be tense, we're working on it. Of course it would of been nice if she would've free-walked, its one of her finer points. But I'm not upset.
Jumping was very nice. Went clear and she put up with some stupidness from me at the beginning. I had only jumped her once since I got back from Germany so I was having a hard time finding spots. But we got it together and it went goodgoodgood
I was hoping everyone else would have some refusals and such because after my dressage test I needed that to place but of course only one person had 4 faults. :P
Pictures! Video will be up as soon as I put it on Youtube, in the jumping though the first jump was missed :\ But it was absolutely atrocious on my part so
Only one jumping picture because the angle was weird on the others.
Apparently I can't ask for the appropriate bend :\
She wasn't behind the vertical the whole time, she just dipped her head for the 2 seconds in which this was taken.
Bahaha and now I'll show you the HIGHTENSNESS!
She was like "AHHGMYLIFE. There is a pond, ducks, strange horses, but I'm supposed to focus.... umumum TENSEEVERYMUSCLE."
I say it was a success because there were no tempis! Small victories!
