I love everything! I love preparing my horse and making him pretty, making myself pretty and breaking out the show clothes... it's just fun! I also like showing off my horse and competing against others, and seeing how I rank. It's kind of my way of seeing how much I've gotten. It's also fun because of all the challenges. :)

I have to add something. I forgot of my most favorite part of showing a horse. I love the candid pictures that people snap when you aren't looking and your horse might not look its best but it is just a really good memory to have. My show horse just passed away on Aug. 10th and all I could think about was the great times that we had at our shows. Remember that no matter what the results of the class please please hug your horse because he/ she might not be there for the next one!! Below is my favorite picture of my horse Otter (he is the bay). It was just the most candid shot that a fellow riders aunt happened to catch at our last Equestrian Team Show of my Senior year. RIP Otter mans!

Just did my first show a month ago, and the best part was going with a group of great people who really looked out for each other. It was a great experience. And taking home blues didn't hurt!! ;)

For those who don't like me-- it's mind over matter; I don't mind - - and you don't matter.

I like going to shows to see how much of a better rider I have become. There's no prouder moment then to get a blue ribbon in good competition. :)
I take private lessons so it's fun to ride against other people
Speaking of shows I have a show this weekend, second time out at 2'3 height!
