I thought I would update everyone on how I've been showing! Two weeks ago my horse and I showed and got fourth in a hunter classic out of 32! It was one of those days that makes everything that you've been working for worth it.
I also show on an IEA team, which is essentially a high school riding team. You draw the horses when you get there, so you don't know the horse you are riding. Anyways, I have showed twice this season and placed 1st in both flats and 4th in one of the o/f. I feel like im finally getting somewhere with my riding - I was away a lot in the beginning of the summer and I feel like the extra effort that I have been putting in has really helped! Anyways, that's my little rant - here is a picture. Sorry there's only one, the person who normally takes photos wasnt there.
