Talking First Event of the season!

This weekend was the first Event schooling show of our season - we moved up a level this year to "Starter" (jumps 2'0" to 2'3" and USDF Intro C test), our very first year showing with a canter in the dressage test so I was very nervous.

But I have to say I am VERY proud of my pony, our dressage went very well, scoring us a 27 and first place out of a field of 13 this weekend!

Unfortunately, after a double clear stadium round, the cross country curse came back to haunt us ;) We had one refusal at jump 3 - and she jumped it from a standstill at my urging, but unfortunately had already taken the step backwards so 20 penalty pts for us :p

That refusal backed us down from 1st place to 10th place overall for the show, but I'm still SOOO proud of my pony for the awesome dressage test! We had some 8's in there (including me for rider position!) and I am very excited about that.

This week will be schooling cross country like crazy so that we're ready for next weekend's show - wish us luck!
