We're Going To Our First "Show"

Heyy,

So we've done one sporting night, but I'm not counting that as a show. But hopefully next weekend on the 6th, Chinga and I will be going to Runcorn and competeing in our first/last 12 and Unders 50cm Show Jumping. I'm hoping to do well, placing anything above 6th is my goal, but I don't really care what we place in, I'd just love to have a clear round. Just thought I'd share with you all

Sir Success. Eventer.

You HAVE to change (wel I suppose you don't HAVE to but you won't place in the ribbons if there are more than 6 riders). Sometimes if you change before the judge notices you can get lucky and won't get docked.
