Ronan and me at the Spruce Meadows February Classic II

Whew! What a LOOOOONG weekend! So I took this completely ass-backwards and decided to take Ronan to his first show: at Spruce Meadows. (As opposed to starting him off with a small hunter schooling show or something littler.. haha) Anyways, Ronan was an absolute angel. He's still very green and I'm just a year getting back into riding seriously after a 4-surgery hiatus.
Soooo... Spruce! Why the hell not? Trailered him over on Thursday night, hacked him in the warm-up arena that night and Friday, and he was completely fine. He had ONE singular "holy $%*&" moment - I took my whip out of my breastplate which spooked him, he jumped straight up in the air, did a capriole, landed back on all fours and carried on in a calm walk.
Saturday we did the 0.7m and 0.8m jumpers (three classes) and today we just did one class each of 0.7m and 0.8m. He took everything in stride. His first time in the show ring (which is very intimidating as it is) he looked around but didn't put a foot wrong; he didn't so much as think of refusing anything.
What a sweet boy. I'm just head over heels thrilled with him. By my last class, he was going like an old pro. I'm very excited to get this show season up and running. I've missed the ring so very much.
Without further ado... pictures! Erm, please excuse my position, it's a work in progress. Always. Sigh.

Well done! What was the weather like there? In a couple of shots, it looks like they were taken outside and you don't look frozen.
