I went to a show last Saturday just for the heck of it and it was pretty fun. I know I have stuff to work on which is what my trainer is for but I promised I would post pictures so here they are.
Duster and I competed in two and three gait classes english. Being as I live in the rainyest state in the US the arena was completely bogged down and hard to manuver, even my trainer's horse was having a hard time and getting irritated despite having competed in mud before. Duster hates mud and puddles so it was a fight to keep him moving, due to the fact that I had to focus so much on just keeping him at the correct gate his headset was left to suffer.
This is only my third ride on this horse though, I was able to keep his frame and headset about one third of the time during our classes. As we compete more and show in a better arena we will look better.
Anyway I got one first, one second, two thirds and daily high point for two gait english.
