So, I posted a critique here a couple weeks ago of my horse's first show. This weekend she had her second show. I got reserve champion again..which I'm so proud of, but I feel like she could have done better. She was in bit of a mare mood, and was taking off with me while I was schooling. But we got through it pretty well.
She did excellent in the flat class, probably because she was tired. I thought I was going to get first, but the judge placed her second. Oh well. Unfortunately my sister wasnt able to get the flat class on video.
Here are two over fences rounds for critiquing. (click the image to view the video)
This class she stopped at a jump. The flowers on the other side of the jump got knocked over, and her being way too observant, noticed it and could not stop looking at it. Since she went over those jumps about 5 times already, I was kind of on auto pilot..so it was the perfect storm for a refusal. I was kind of embarrassed about it, but it was only her second show.
