Thanks Wintec. Bear ended up pulling a shoe the morning of the show, and no way would I show a horse that had 3 shoes, hehe. Anyways, I shows my western trainers mare western. We got 1st in eq. and 3rd in pleasure. She was super lazy, so I put my spurs on to wake her up a little (more like my trainer told me to) and then she didnt lope, he galloped, it was fun... ;]
Im sure Bear didnt mind, he got to stay out in the yard and eat tall, green grass all day!
Anyways, it might be that Bear and I wont be working for a while, lol. I am pulling his back shoes because his hooves are just not holding up to them well. I just have a gut feeling he will do better without them. So I am going to give him time to get used to have only front shoes, which will be interesting. So lets cross our fingers that he holds up to it well. But that will also give up lots of bonding time with eachother, which will be very good!
Yesterday when I got home from the show, he just touched noses with Junior for a minute then came right to me and gave me a bit "hug". So cute!
You can never take a Thoroughbred away from a horse crazy girl.
