Thought you guys might like to hear the result of the show.
The sport horse classes were great for her. She did really well and she was super happy with the show. The sport horse classes where much more low key then the hunter pleasure classes. I also finally convinced her to try some h/j schooling shows.
Yes it was very hard to watch the abuse in the main ring, especially the saddleseat horses. You see abuse at all shows, but the blatant acceptance of it was hard to watch. She is going to watch an A h/j show this week and I am hoping she will see the difference.
