Champion in my first Schooling Show!

Hi everyone! I meant to post earlier but time has just gotten away from me.

I did my very first EVER schooling on June 24th. I almost didn't do it because I had to work the weekend before and I was stressed and wanted to have time to practice. But my coach said I'd do fine, so I had my lesson the day before (missing the one the previous week) and competed the next day.

I was in the Adult Walk/Trot class with the following divisions:
-Over Poles

I was riding Fidelio, who is a 20 something Trakehner who is awesome but has the bounciest trot ever! Did I mention I've never sat his trot in practice because I have been riding another horse in practice? LOL Guess what I had to do in the show....of course the sitting trot!

Anyway it was an awesome experience and I took:

-Equitation 3rd
-Pleasure 2nd
-Obedience 1st
-Over Poles 2nd

And I won the overall class!! WOOT!

Here's a pic of Fidelio and I. I can't wait to do my next show...hoping to be jumping by then!

Thanks Superstar! I wish he was my horse, but he's actually only my schooling horse. But he's my favorite to ride of my trainer's horses. One day I will own one. :)
