The show was here, and it was our big moment. My trainer, parents and everyone I cared about was in the sidelines. We were 10th out of 15 competitors, and until then I was giving Diamond a pep talk while grooming her. Our turn was up and we picked up the canter. Sailing over the first jump, I noticed that something was wrong....Diamond was getting distracted by all the noise. I had to keep her going. So far we were in the lead but Diamond knocked down a pole on the next jump. We sailed over the next few but Diamond's heart wasn't in it. I was about to give up forcing her to do something when I saw a flash of gold..I looked around and I swear I saw Opal. Whether it was her or not, it gave us both the courage to finish. We came in first and after we got our ribbon we went to the trailer only to see the vet standing there with Opal....what was going on?
