About a year ago I decided to rebring up one pony mare (Rebringing up 7y.o. mare)
Well, we have recently had our first show together :)
Well, it's not "show" exactly... It is something like really BIG trail ride, symbolizing fox hunting, the leading horses plays a fox and the others follow him, not allowed to get in front of him. The journey is through forests and fields and there are some obstacles made, but it's optional if you want to jump them or not. At the end there is one big salami hidden somwhere in a field (in a pack of hay, under some obstacel,...) and whoever finds it is the winner of the hunting :)
Well, we didn't find the salami, but Liza was extremly good on this action!
I was afraid that she will be stressed by the number of hrses, but she did as an professional :) I am proud of her :) Neither dogs nor cars were frightening her :) She stood totally calm for whole the day! I was really surprised! She made me feel really special because some people there knew her and knew how hard was to ride her.
Well, we got our first ribbon :) Everyone did, but it makes me feel great anyway :) She was having her head a bit upper on these photos, because she had to greet ALL od the 35 horses there, of course :) And she was conversating all over the ride with he horses around Especially with one young stallion there, who was few horses behind us. LÝza was in "her days" and I think really provoked him Poor stallion
This "show" usually "celebrates" the end of the riding season. It takes place every year in OCT/NOV... Really great fun there!
^^greeting at once
^^ greeting again
^^ She did great job!
