Talking Relana's FIRST Dressage show Saturday!

My dear baby Relana will have her first Dressage show on Saturday. I will be showing her Into B. She is 4 years old and has been ridden on and off for about 6 months. I'm so excited to finally be able to show her because she is doing so amazing with her training. I just had to get this out so why not on the forum?? Anyway after the show I will be posting a lot of pictures of me and her showing. Thanks for reading!

Well, hey, will you post some pics next week? I wish the best of luck and may I say , what you may already know, to keep in mind that it's a learning experience for her. So, if she can't handle a movement or the pressure, do what she needs most for her to come away from the whole thing with a positive feeling. Don't worry if she wont go past the judge's booth. Don't make it a horrible deal, just finishe on a good note where you've got her trust and all. Its' easy to loose sight of that in your quest to have a good test.

In any case, the very best of luck to you.

Yes I will be posting lots of pics. She is really good about going everywhere, the show is at the barn where I have her at so she is really used to it. I'm usually very relaxed with her and when I get mad I remember how young she is. Thank you though, I totally agree it's very easy to have it all about the test I just want to make it a fun experience.

Okay so Relana did very good in the show! We walked on the hill to the show arena alone without her friend (which we have never done before :/) so she was very nervous. After a couple minutes of running around we went down the center line to start our test. She finally relaxed. The only part where she got super nervous was our free walk diagonal. We ended up getting a 59.37%. I was so proud of her because she was so hyper and nervous and it was her first show. She got lots of love and treats after it was a happy experience for sure! :). Pictures coming soon!

You know, on your first show you are SUPPOSED to bolt in fear from the judges stand, run through (or if an eventer, jump) the dressage ring rail, drag said chain/planking all the way to the trailer parking freaking out all the horses tied there.....creating total mayhem.

Sounds like you and your horse are well on your way to a great partnership. I do have one complaint, though......where are the photos???

Yes she was very amazing. I can tell in a few shows she will be a huge show off :). Next show season she will be in every show I can get her in! .

Pictures will be coming soon! I wasn't able to get any pictures with my camera all my friends did so once I can get my hands on them they will come ASAP! . Thanks everyone!
