A day of rise and falls(literally!)

Well my first show in like 5 years was yesterday, and we had a great-bad-great day. We had 1st in dressage and I was so happpy! But on XC I fell on jump 3. So I was eleminated, but everyone but one person was elemnated on the XC! I still got to do my SJ round and went clean with a nice time, so we ended on a good note. I plan on going and schooling XC about once a month and getting dressage lessons so I can so win it in the fall!

We all have to have bad days to give us great days. Sorry about your fall. I've had my share, but from those you learn to sit deep, tall with solid legs - so you have to be thankful for the mistakes to teach you.

I hope you got pictures or vids!

^yea, unforch I think they got my horrible XC round! And I don't think it was my position, it was that Blue had never seen a jump like it,

99% of errors is rider.

Yes, but both my trainer and my mom said that some of the blame in this part was Blue, it wasn't all my fault.

Not trying to be mean but it's bad sportsmanship to blame a fall on the horse.

...naughty girl blaming the horse like that! It's usually more rider error then bad pony error.... tsk-tsk! I'm glad you ended on a good note... I was opposite, the dressage test was always the worst score and then cross country always put me back in the running... show jumping was the make or break to put me back in the ribbons....

Ummm, Thanks for your imput, I do belive that most falls and such are rider error, and this was partly my fault for not riding aggressavly enough, but she also refused because she wasn't trained engough, but she does know how to jump a solid oxer, and my trainer and I both belive that is was 50% me 50% her.

If she refused the jump because she never faced an obsticle of that sort - then it was your fault for her being unprepared.

Never blame the horse.
