    Smile First show (Mini Event)

    Well, we did it, we successfully completed our first eventing mini trial I was nervous the ENTIRE time, which didn't help my performance, but despite that I managed to be 3rd after dressage. My stadium course at the end was perfect, but the issue was good ol' cross country!

    On the third jump, Sandie was terrified of the rocks in front of the jump and refused, and I went right off the side of her unfortunately! So I was eliminated from the show...they were nice enough to let me get back on and finish the course though, just to give her some more experience. Here are some pics and videos (including the fall!)

    The best portion of our dressage was our free walk - an 8 out of 10

    Congrats on your first show. You both look great - and I love the GREEN!

    Crud happens, but take this opportunity to ask yourself what exactly went wrong, and correct it. You and Sandie have come a long way together, and have many many years to forward to, growing and learning together.

    Keep it up - look forward to hearing more about your days together.

    More pics (from the photographer's website - I am SO buying a ton of these, even if I did get eliminated from the show, because hey it was my first show!)

    PS I love how this little pony jumps these 1' jumps like they're 2' high! She's so cute!

    Also, please no critiques on my form...I have had PLENTY and have lots to work on, and plus the above pics were taken after I fell off and got back on to finish the course so I was very rattled about the refusal and was doing things like not releasing enough, looking down at the jump, etc. which I know I shouldn't have been doing! But man was my adrenaline pumping at that point!! Lol
