I apologise in advance - SUPER PROUD MOMMY here!!
Went to the show today, she WON her class!!!
She did well. One of the other kids rode much more confidently but the judge put everything into consideration - we were easily best turned out, she as dressed the best and her seat/equitation were far better than the others. I was delighted as the judge at this show last year was local and picked the local kids.
Having won our class, we then qualified for the Championship.... and finished secodn!! First ever Reserve Champion for my little woman! The placing were spot on, the kid who won (was on the leadline) but they looked the part, th kid rode well. DD again hesitant to move forward. I think that being her first time off the lead she was more confused on what to do. They could have let the kids on the leadlines go first to give the others an idea of what to do?
Anyway... we are all (tired) and DELIGHTED with the results
