    Finally went to my first show

    After a couple horse show cancellations I finally got to compete last weekend. I was in four classes.

    First was adult english equitation. I didn't place because my leads were wrong in both directions. I could've sworn they were right.

    Then I was in adult english pleasure. I got third place. I got the correct leads, yay.

    Then I had open english pleasure. I got fifth.

    Then last I was in adult english hunter hack. I got second, but it was out of two. So I'm not to crazy about that one.

    The one I'm most proud of is the fifth because that was my toughest class and I wasn't even expecting to place in that one. There was a ton of people in that class who've probably been riding most of their lives.

    I got my next show this weekend. It's a tougher show so I'm not sure if I'll place at all.

    Good for you! It must be so much fun for you, getting out there for the first time! Did anyone get pictures of you riding?

    Well done! I haven't competed before (but hope to soon), so I don't know exactly what you're going through, but any placing is excellent! (well as far as i'm concerned lol!)

    Congrats !!! For your first show... you did pretty amazing!! Ahh I luv horse shows. I know what you mean about the 5th place thing. I just went to a horse show like two weekends ago and I was in an English hack class and it was juniors,seniors and adults combined (i am a junior), so there was like 15 people in the class and I place 4th !! I was sooo excited. Good luck at next show!

    P.S. - do you have any pics from the show ???? If you do can you please post them??

    Someone else took the pics. But they're not developed yet. I have to wait until after this weekend's show cause the camera hasn't been used up yet.

    Congrats...they way I look at it the greatest prize is getting to show a horse and getting to ride... winning or placing is just an added bonus!!! Best of luck at your next show!!!
