As I said earlier most of our jumps now consist of two poles laying on the ground. Nothing to big, but he has refused them before.
At the very beginning of him being blind I was told by just about everyone I knew that riding a blind horse is dangerous, they are to unpredictable. After a year or so of practice, it was closer to two years, I invited them to come to a horse show. I entered myself in a novice dressage class, mostly because I wished to prove to the people who told me he was unpredictable just what we are made of. We placed third, it was mostly because I made a mistake. The judge, who I had told that Reggie was blind just in case something did happen, announced to everyone that Reggie was blind as he was clipping the ribbon onto the bridle. We got more applause then the first place winner, who was also clapping. Reggie just stood there like a statue and I could tell that he was getting anxious. Since then we have not been to another show.
