Hi everyone, this was my first show with the mare I lease, Wren. She was a super star considering that we were LITERALLY swimming in all of the rain and water! It was quite possibly the worst conditions I have ever ridden in. I am very proud of her though for simply doing what I asked.
I'm looking for a critique on our walk/trot/canter equitation class. This was my fifth class of the day, and you could say I was completely dead. I wouldn't normally enter five classes, however three of them were trotting 4 crossrails around the arena once, and all of the classes were opportunity classes. I am really hoping to improve my eq this summer, seeing as I have a pretty bad problem with letting my heels come up at the canter. My upper body is very stiff because Wren got extremely strong (She has a bolting/spooking problem we have been working on for two years now) and I especially didn't want her getting too fast in the horrible "swimming pool".
Here it is! I'm very proud of my girl overall, and we will have lots more shows this summer with hopefully better weather to make up for some of our mistakes.
Wren is the chestnut with a blaze, and I am number 190.
Thanks so much everyone :)
