So, as most of you know, I ride English & jump. I joined the showteam at the place I ride at now, & it's been going up from there!
Daytona (horse I ALWAYS ride, my loveee<3) was lame (but getting so much better every day) because she had an abcess, so I had to ride Trooper. Trooper is rarely ever worked, but he's a really good, willing horse. Pretty, too. :) LOL, ignore my game face. :P
Yesterday was a VERY long day. I had to wake up at 4AM, get to the place I ride at around 6, get Trooper ready (we had a grooming/schooling session the night before, though) & put him on the trailer. Ah, got there around 7. Now, our divisions weren't until 10AM & 3PM. But, we did have fun waiting around & getting prepared. Also, we could school in the meantime (practice).
Sorry, so long...but I won a 5th & 6th place. Ah, not my best. But it was my second time riding Trooper, cut me some slack!
NOTE: I decided not to jump him yesterday. He's not ready. He's out of shape & unbalanced. Gotta work with him more.
BTW: & BELIEVE ME, it was VERY hot, 87F degrees!
Trooper's well, a trooper! LOL.
Waiting to go into the indoor arena for our last division. Number 226 (me) FTW! :)
My Mom was like "SMILE!" I was tightening his girth. LOL!
I LOVE his caramel eyes. :)
Warming up. Beautiful scenery, eh?

I love us.
