Exclamation Vince Dugan's Show Aug. 15th 2009* Riding Trooper.

Hi, everyone! 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.
PICS! :aw:
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?

BTW: Here are some the photographer's pictures: Credit goes to JohnRobert S.

The whole team. I love us.

Very cute pics, nice group and good note, can't help but think your saddle looks a little too far back??? Needs to be closer to his withers

Ahah, thanks! About the saddle, well, he has a swayback. So, the saddle may have been sliding back, or appears to be back too far. He's not worked very much, but hopefully he'll get some muscle soon.

Cute! Not bad for a last minute choice in mounts!

He's a pretty boy. You ride in a really pretty place. I wish I lived in the USA. Where I live where in a drought. Stupid Australia!

Haha, thanks! I know, the showgrounds were realllllly nice. I wish I rode there! LOL. Yeah, he's a cutie. & a good, willing horse!

Wow, he's absolutely stunning! Such a unique color, and looks like a pretty flashy mover too :) Looks like you had a great time.
As a side note, though: 87 sounds positively chilly to me! Try doing a show in San Diego with a full shirt and hunt coat in 107 degree weather (my last show was one of those). Haha. It's not pretty.
