WOW I am stocked, this is such a great motivator just to see the dates up online.... All three shows are held at the same grounds, the first show is just a two day and the other two shows are three days!
We will be showing training level and maybe start showing first at one of the last two shows if he proves he can do it.
This will be the little boy's first big show year. This last season I took him to two schooling shows. One jumper and one dressage and both shows he was a rock star so I am not too worried about him as much as him feeding off any nerves of my own. We have done tons of hill work since the weather for awhile was not on our side, now starting back to the arena work. Starting to look at show forms and what I need to start putting away. I need to make an account with my bank for horse shows only!
This weekend I sadly don't get to bring him along to my other trainer who lives out of town but we are taking the Irish baby "D" who is schooling 2nd level now and the freisan mare who will be showing 3rd level this coming season when we take baby O out!
I can't belive in April O will be a whopping 8 years old this April!! Time has sure flown by! I will have had him for three years in August!! Best three years of my life so far horse wise!!
I haven't taken any recent pictures to post as he is so dang hairy all you would be able to see is a black hairy hair ball with stubby kegs and two little ears poking out from the top haha
Anyways, now that I have these dates and a good job to help pay for everything.... there is so much to do..... star shopping for show clothes, tall boots, money aside for said shows, for said fuel and ferry costs, for membership fees and photography money....
This is our year 2014! We can do it! We will do it and will we kick butt!
First show is in May!
