Talking My first AA show!

I'm so excited, it was a lot of fun. We both improved a ton with just a few rides, he's really starting to get a nice uphill canter and push off for the jumps. We jumped a wide 2'9" oxer in schooling and it was the best jump we've ever had. He really has power when he gets it right!

The last two days we did pre-childrens' horses (2'6") No ribbons Sat., but Sun. I got a 3rd and a 7th out of 17! I don't remember ribbons from the first days, but with the pro. rider he got champion in modifieds and reserve champion in baby greens. Oh, and we had such a great canter, we actually took out strides a few times, but didn't add at all!

Pretty cool that my four year old OTTB is holding his own with horses twice his age and 5X his price I've only had him four months, so I'm excited to see how we do in a few months!

Sorry no pictures yet, but I promise I'll put them up in the next few days!

Here's a few pictures of Baby greens with the pro rider. He was being a dweeb with his feet because of the mud, but he still got fourth, first and second out of tenish horses.

It was pretty funny that we drove four hours to another state, and the judge was the person my trainer used to lease her barn from
