First horse show :D

so on the 9th (Sunday) was mine and skips first horse show at the Douglas county fair . The day was very rainy and almost miserable in fact. We competed in English pleasure- 3rd equitation-1st western pleasure- 2nd western horsemanship- 1st.
Here is a picture of us before we went in to the ring for English pleasure
For the first 2 classes (English pleasure and equitation) he was very stubborn at taking gaits but we didn't have any time to warm up or anything but we still did pretty good. I was very surprised about the western results as we had never practiced them before and was just like a what the heck kind thing. For the horse it was a huge weekend also. First time staying in a stall, first sleazy, first hardcore bath, and first time being shaved, being banded and even got his tail braided. In fact the night before everyone was already their and I had three girls crowding around him trying to get him ready and showing me what to do. One of them even commented on how they were all helping me to beat them
But after pleasure we did a bit of gaming (at the trot ) we did barrels -nothing poles- 2nd jumping figure 8-2nd and egg and spoon-3rd
Anyways thanks for reading

I was actually very hesitant to enter in to horse show as I didn't think we were ready so it was entirely for fun.
