    Talking My first away show! :D (PICS!)

    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

    Warm-up jumps.

    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.

    Great job! You too look great! It looks like you had a lot of fun. Was it a team show? Or individual that you all went to together? I wish I had a team to show with!! Lol

    I can see them, you both look great! You had a nice day for it too by the looks of the puffy clouds and blue sky
    Ariel just glows, your arm must have been tired from brushing.

    You both are very nicely turned out! Looks like you had great weather and a lot of fun! :) I'm glad you had such a good time at your first away show! Careful, it's addicting!!! ;)

    Aww, thanks everyone! Yeah, it was awesome. I can't wait until the next one...gonna be a lot this summer! Haha, I'm pumped. :)

    Yeah, the weather was, but still nice. It did rain early in the AM, but then it stopped- perfect!
    Thanks, you guys!

    Congrats on your first show! Job well done :) But lets not blame our horses for refusals when 99% is rider error.

    The one part I hate the most about Comps, is the early hours you have to get up to do them - blah!

    Great pictures! Thanks for sharing!

    I know, but she hasn't shown before (out of her own home, you know), so it could be the environment that was one cause of her refusal. :)
    After a bit of schooling at the show, I got her over them, though. It's all good! & aw, thanks! Haha I know, I had to get up at like 4:30AM! :P
