    Thanks, Wren! Yep, she's a TB, I've had her for a year. That was a pretty bad last minute tail braid, but it doesn't look too bad. I don't think it's a matter of that feeling of a race; she had a rough start off the track after she was re-trained in dressage. The dressage trainer sold her to someone who REALLY screwed her up, to where she lost all of her dressage training and would basically flip out whenever you touched her sides. She sold her because she didn't know how to fix her, and the next owner was deathly afraid of her canter! So I ended up with her, sent her back to the original dressage trainer for a month, and since then she's done very well. I still need to work on slowing that canter down even more, but honeslty, I'm delighted with how she's going! Here's a video Jenni (the original off-track trainer) sent me of Molly when she first had her:

    Fuadteagan, thanks! Just keep working with her; she'll eventually learn not to go down for grass. I can't imagine how bad Molly would have been had there been grass in the ring .

    I agree with what MIE said.

    Going to add that I suggest that you invest in a pair of gloves. It will help complete your look. If you need to make a correction, it helps them blend in with your horse a little more. You can wear them in the english and western classes as well. For your western class, you are showing an awful lot of boot.

    Velvet, thanks, I'll wear my gloves at tomorrow's show. I know I have a lot of boot showing; the pants aren't really show pants and my chaps are blue and don't match that shirt. They were just fun classes, though.
