I think more barns should just do this. All proceeds went to the SPCA, the barn actually lost money. There were just a few jumping classes, english equitation, western equitation, and a whole bunch of fun classes. Each class was either $10 or $15 and all spectators had to bring a donation (a dog toy, cat toy, kitty litter, food, etc). It was super relaxed and super fun.
Jesse and I did the Intermediate English Equitation and the Beginner Jumpers. I haven't jumped in either 3 or 4 years so it was quite interesting. We ended up placing 2nd in the equitation because we picked up the wrong lead going left in the canter and first in the jumper class. I will have to see if there are any pictures that aren't a blur! Lol. I'm so proud of Jesse, he was so good!
