Thanks everyone! She was really good, just a a bit fresh. She was doing really well in the snaffle at home but I didn't take into account nerves at shows. Should have brought the pelham as well because she needed it to be that extra thing like "I'm still here" :\ We only did the 2'6" because she was flying and I was having issues collecting her and she did not want to wait at all. Got two 2nds in the division we did do though!
But boy was she on top of it other than that! I swear when I memorized the course she must have too! At one point in particular there was a diaganol option with a liverpool and a wavyish plank and after that there was a long space where you went diaganol towards the rail where the next jump was (parallel to the rail). I was going to take her diagonal and then straighten her out, it was a large space. The wavy plank made the next jump tighter, but she is so good at turning I took it. After the jump she knew which jump was next and as we were heading diaganol she started side passing to straighten herself out for it
Makes me happy that she is starting to be able to think for herself more on course, and shaved off a few seconds without doing anything risky! She'll be a kids pony yet
