Hey, everyone! So, I had my first show away from my barn *with my showteam!* on the 31st; it was GREAT!!!
I placed 3rd & 6th in the walk/trot/canter, 3rd in jumping, & 5th in walk/trot, I think? I did pretty good for my first away show. It was awesome. My next away show is June 28th I think, I'm pumped! I'm going to be showing a lot this summer.
Well, onto the pictures! I rode Ariel, since Daytona was missing a shoe. :/ Plus, I don't think Daytona's absolutely ready for this just yet. :) Ariel is a great horse, & she always takes care of me over the jumps!
(IGNORE my EQ- I know I need to work on my heels down & having a longer leg, I'm working on it!)
Before the show (getting all tacked up) at like 6AM- LOL, ignore me...I was still waking up, haha! :P
Afterwards, was going to give her a huge pat on the neck!
All ready! She was very shiny, the night before I spent hours grooming her & bathing her.
She's like, "Are we done yet?" Lol, resting. :P
She refused the jump before the one I was going to once, because she was nervous I think- I mean, it was a new environment for her. :) I got her over them, though!
Woo, little warm-up jumps! :)
Hope you enjoyed the pictures. I had a lot of fun, & my team & I supported each other a lot. It was a great day.
