    Wonderful show weekend!

    Since the time I converted Jax from a western pleasure horse into a dressage pony (heh), I have been itching to try him in AHA A-rated sporthorse classes in order to get something new on his AHA record. Well, we had our debut this past weekend at the Silver Buckle Show in Tucson, AZ and it was absolutely a blast!

    We pulled off 1/5 in novice rider, 2/4 in ATR, 1/5 in open on Saturday and for the championships on Sunday, we took Reserve Champion in open and Champion in ATR! I was so thrilled!! Jax was wonderful for the most part, and in honesty the times we didn't take 1st were partially due to rider error (in my opinion!). Moreover, he really showed off that dressage training! Beautiful bend on his circles for reversing direction, gorgeous leg yields at the canter when passing other riders-- I was such a proud momma!!!

    Okay okay... now what everyone really clicked this thread for... a few pictures. ;) I was incredibly busy so I didn't take many, but I do have a few low-res proofs from a photographer so sorry if they're tiny!
