I took Lenox to her first show on Sunday, and haven't had a chance to upload the pictures and videos until today. Molly did okay, but I think she did better last weekend. Lenox was just amazing! Because she's over 5, she had to be shown in a curb bit, so I put her in one for the first time at the show and rode her (she already had the neck reining basics down) and was just stunned at how well she behaved. In the warm-up arena I put her on a loose rein and just trotted and practiced her stop. She slowed her trot down to a lovely WP jog when I put my weight back and wiggled my feet, and stopped on a dime whenever I put my weight back and said Woah. There was a pattern posted for our Horsemanship class, so we practiced it in the warm-up arena. There was a haunches-in, and she picked it up after only a few minutes of a nonallowing rein and a heel pushing her butt over. They didn't end up calling for the pattern, though, but it was good practice regardless.
I don't mind a little critique, but try to refrain from tearing her apart as neither of us have had any training and it was her first show.
And here's Molly at the same show; I haven't uploaded her videos yet but here are pictures:
