First Show Ever (results!)

I am too excited for words! I had my very first show today. I took it easy and only signed up for three classes. Showmanship (4H advisor wanted me to), Sr.English Equitation, and Sr. English Pleasure.


Showmanship- BOMBED! I knew going into the class we wouldn't do well, but this was utter embarrassment! We had to trot to marker #3, then back. Well, the trot was good, but when we went to back, Zoey decided she was going to back on a curve. She backed all the way out of the line of markers (cones). It was BAD. I was so embarrassed. I was a little mad because of the embarrassment, but not necessarily at her. We hadn't practiced much so it was ok.

Equitation: 3rd PLACE!!!!!!! I was so excited! During the class I was so happy with her behavior and everything. She slowed down her trot when I asked and dropped her head when I asked.Going into the show not expecting anything, then getting 3rd was AWESOME!

Pleasure: There were so many horses in that class it was a bit hectic. Both my grandma & Zoey's owner said I should have placed. We all think the judge just picked the 5 biggest movers cause it was so crazy in there. I never really looked at the judge, but people said she kept looking at me.

I am still so excited about getting 3rd. I had a great time! Can't wait for the next show.

Edit: We have pictures but I will post them later.

Hmm let's see! lol I'm trying to remember

It was a really small show but it was totally worth the time for diamon!

Hunt seat 12 and under- We did ok. Got the wrong lead once, but quickly changed I came 3rd out of 4

Hunt Seat eq 12 and under-Diamon was acting up badly in this class, but i rode him through it. Came 4th out of

Open hunt seat- We did awesome in this class, but didn't even place due to politics which are very bad there. The judges had already made up their mind before the class.

Hunter hack cross rails(18 inch jumps)- We did really awesome in this class. The jumps were small but it was for experience. We compleytely bombed the class and came 1st out of 4. It was Diamon's 1st blue ribbon!

Wherever you go, go with all of your heart
