Cool So Excited for Sporting Days! What shows do you all have coming up?!

Hey guys, so I just did Paradise horse trials over the weekend and out of 24 horses, we ended up 4th with a score of 32.6!!! We were doing novice level, but on March 6th, I'm going to move up to training level at sporting days with Mouse and I am SO excited, we can do the stretching and extended trot at home, but not quite sure how he will be in the show ring since we both tense up. With that said, I'm not expecting a GREAT dressage score, I just want to get through the day without any problems!

What shows do you have coming up in the 2011 spring show season?!

March 12th- XC schooling at Flying Cross
March13th- Covered Bridge Combined Test (BN)
April 9th and 10th- Spring Bay Horse Trials (BN)
May (?)- MayDaze Horse Trials (N)

After that, not sure. And this is IF and only IF my horse stays sound!

Awesome! And sound is always good!! Last year mouse was a little off a week before one show, and after that show we had 4 shows planned every weeken after that! Totally the worst time

What area of eventing are you in?

I am in area 8 - and we don't start our season until May. Our first HT is May 6th I believe.

I have a clinic with a 3* Eventer March 19th - that's about it thus far.

I've got a couple of dressage comps coming up over the next couple of weekends. They'll be Bob's first official tests and have entered in both prelim and novice (first and second level in US???), he's never done a novice and last prelim was an unofficial day 3 years ago. It's a big ask for him but he's going so well at home I think he is ready.
Hopefully we'll qualify in those for State Champs which are in April. Fingers crossed!
In 2 weeks I've got a 2 day clinic with an interstate Grand Prix competitor, then a few smaller comps here and there before States if I get in. Going to be pretty busy over the next few months!!
