On SUnday (9th August) Barney and I went to our local gymkhana (like a pony club only show) and we had an absolute BALL!! We only went in flat events (no jumping, novelties etc.) but we ended up winning third in versatile mount anyway!! =) he behaved like an absolute angel the whole day!! In the pony club ring, we came 1st in my BDPC out of 8 riders (it was my pony club holding it, so we have special events for our pony club riders), then reserve champion overall out of 6 riders (we have 45 people in our club, so second best is AWESOME!!). I then got 1st in my pony club rider out of about 12 riders, but missed out in the champion and reserve out of 6 riders. We got second in Pony Club mount (out of about 8), A friend and I got 3rd in pairs out of 6 pairs, then our team ended up winning team of four out of 6 teams!! In the open ring we got 4th in smartest on parade, 3rd in novice ridden hack, 4th in open hack, 2nd in educated hack, 3rd in pleasure hack and second in my rider!! Then I also won my bareback class =) over all a very successful day, coming home with 12 ribbons, a reserve champion, 3rd in versatile and a trophy =D
