gypsys first event - with photos

I took gypsy BN this weekend at a one day. She was AWESOME in dressage ! A little tense [prob bc I was too] and the footing was horrible so that didnt help. But we got a score or 32.4 which I was very happy with.

Stadium we got one rail. I was happy though because it was a tough course and she was pretty spooked by the plastic jumps. She usually doesnt get rails but at the first fence she stopped at the base and then jumped it. A couple others she didnt want to jump but she did anyway and after a few jumps she wasnt spooked anymore !

Sadly we did get E on xc =[ I was dissapointed but not mad because the beginning of the course was pretty hard for that level [even though they said it was an average course]. Over all she was a very good pony and she was really good about being braided and the whole show scene.

Here are some pics:





We got an 8 on our halt =]

Glad you had a good day.


That chess jump looks scary to me. I can totally see why a horse would find it imposing.

Sounds like a lot of fun!

That chess jump is really cool, but I can see a horse finding it frightening. Heck both of mine would probably run in the opposite direction!
