I'm not going to lie.
Showing off. Honestly, I love showing off my improvements and achievements with my horse. I want to show off our bond, our difficulties and overcoming those. I love showing my horse off, I think he is beautiful and incredibly talented. I love the adrenaline of feeling nervous and accomplishing goals and pushing myself to achieve better and better. It is never really about a faster time, or the best placing for me. But sometimes the best shows are where we have a clean round, or we both get along and have a great connection. Its about improving our personal best and understanding each other in a stressful situation.
