After several cancellations we got to our first show today. The weather has been so bad that they have to keep cancelling everything as it is far too mucky. Conditions were horrific, I ended up just stayin in my jeans and paddock boots instead of changing into the "mommy gear". We had to park down the road and walk him up through all the traffic. The jeep and box got stuck where we parked, so we had to unhook the box and push it back (with the help of a group of young lads walking by). We were the first class in the ring, and the ground was already slop... I wouldnt want to be on any later than we were!
Anyway... we finished 2nd!! Didn't deserve to win, the people who won had a top notch pony and were kitted out to the last. Amazingly, I noticed we were the only ones to give the pony a pat and scratch and tell him how good he was
Anyway... here's Simba! SAM_0487.jpg
