So first show for my very uppity TB mare, and yes we used a little ACE..
it was a good thing.

first off it was supposed to rain and thunder and lighting all day......so they combined all classes in the indoor arena


Well the "green" classes were supposed to be outside in the back.

any way we got there a little late and all the classes were being run in the covered arena as the website had advised.

She did lovely and placd in 3 out of 5 classes with a bit of competition, so keep your hey out for her :))

awesome job! do you have any pics for us? I love horse show pics! I don't think I've ever ridden with lightning... rain and wind but not lightning.

uploading the video to youtube right now. They had to stop the show several times because of the lightning. At one point I could barely get her to go out of the covered area to go in the ring (which was covered) because she didn't want to step out into the rain (she is prissy that way) Her very first class was hack class and she placed 4th out of 14 even though she did some shying a tad... will post the movie shortly

Good for you! Be aware though, ACE is illegal in alot of show circuits so if they were to ever test you'd be penalized however that particular circuit chose to.

Will be looking for the vids...

oh it was a schooling show and I really wasn't even sure if I would take her in a class. Thanks for the warning, I am sure they are not legal for rated shows. I just wanted her to have a good experience the first time out... didn't use much but it was just enough to take the edge off and get her through the shock of being off the farm and around all those horses. I would never use it if I was seriously competing, etc. These were "green" classes and trust me I was glad I had did it and provided a good first experience and I asked several trainers, etc ahead of time and they all said absolutely the right thing to do.

be posting video shortly :)

Oh, I'm not judging you. Alot of people will ACE a horse before taking it to it's first show or before trailering, shoeing, etc. I just wanted to make sure you were aware...

okay for those of you who don't know me you have to understand I have been through some ups and downs with this horse and I was really surprised that she handled this first outing so well. She has never been off the farm really and when we see other horses on the trail she gets very excited.

She can also be rather unpredictable so had no idea how she would handle this but she did pretty darn good. Okay she refused a jump (actually she just didn't want to go in the dark corner of the arena where the jump was, she wasn't very happy with being in there all alone)

She shied at the grandstands a few times and didn't like going into the arena alone and fought that. Its much better than expected though, so I am very happy! (its not me riding in these videos by the way)
