I've been waiting to post this for a while now, but the photographer JUST got the pictures up. The mini event was last Sunday. My Arabian mare, Isa, and I rocked it! Well sorta of..... It was our first event together so there were a lot of new obstacles we had overcome(literally).
My goals were to, a) not get eliminated and b) not to fall off. We succeeded in not doing those so yay!
Anyways, we entered the Elementary divison which was the 2 footers. They were tiny but seemed completely HUGE when you were actually jumping them, lol.
So in dressage, we took a video but couldn't upload it. Anyways, the test was the 2010 Beginner Novice Test B. We scored a 34.4 on it and had the lowest score in the divison. YAY! We got a blue ribbon.(It was the prize for the top three lowest dressage scores in each divison.) I was so proud of my little mare!
Then we kinda fell apart in stadium. Well not really, lol. Isa is very spooky about new fences so I was worried sick that she was going to refuse every single fence. But, that didn't happen, thank goodness. It was only the very last fence she refused. It was completely my fault. My trainer said I had "last fenceitis". I kinda asumed she would go over it when she didn't. So we ended Stadium with four faults. (here's a pic of the big scary jump she refused, lol) EQphoto - E-mail Address Required )
In cross-country we went clean.
So in the end, with the four faults tacked on, we got sixth overall. I was very proud of us to survive that event. I'm lucky to have such a good mare!
