Faith's first under saddle show!

I'm very excited with showing Faith this year. I'm very proud of her.

My original plan (since she's only 3 years old) was not to show this year and just do some training. However things didn't work out so well and I was asked to go with a show with my friends from the barn.

I was going go to, but then Faith got a injury (not sure what happened). I took her out of her stall on Monday and she had a nice, lovely, scrape down the back of her gaskin. Tuesday it was swollen, no heat, no favoring it, etc. So I told everyone that I wouldn't make it to the show. But Friday night, while everyone was out at the barn taking care of their horses before the show on Saturday, I looked at Faith's leg and the swelling was almost gone. Then I told everyone I was going. I haven't ridden her in almost a week, so I was convinced she was going to be insane at the show...Ha, ha.

I went to the show and got there. I let her lunge, etc. Um. Well. It was terrific. After our showmanship class (we got 3rd place) I jumped up on her. She acted like she's been doing this her whole life. This is her 2nd show season (about her 7th show) and last show season I just did in hand.

Well we ended up placing in all of our classes. We just did walk/trot classes.

Showmanship- 3rd
English Equitation- 2nd
English Pleasure- 4th
Western Horsemanship- 2nd
Western Pleasure- 6th
Trail- 3rd

I was so proud of her for doing so well.


Here are some pics!

You guys look great congrats!

You are never better than anyone. Every rider has skills they need to improve. The only one you must compare yourself with, is you.
