Hee hee. That won't be a problem anytime soon. We're just doing elementary level at shows and schooling BN. We still have kinks to work out.
Got lucky. While it did pour like nothing else on the way up, the back edge of the storm was just passing through when I got there. I rode my dressage test in a light drizzle and it was sunny by the time we got to XC which was luckily 3 hours later. The ground was in great shape for XC, so I was able to just ride at a nice brisk canter. The stadium course was a little slick, and my naughty horse used the standing water as an excuse to opt out of the first fence, but it was otherwise a good day. Overall we really lucked out with the weather. We got 4th, and I accomplished my goal of of staying out of my poor horse's mouth when jumping. Got two pics to confirm it from the professional photographer who was there. Only about 17 more fixes to make before we can move up!!
