Holy Moley! What a day for you With Grace! Congratulations! Not only on your placings, but just making it through all that! What a husband you must have.

Welcome sinnabun. I must say. You're my age and you look great. Beautiful horse too.

CW. Hang in there. It's getting closer and you're going to love it!

Welcome sinnabun!

I am sporting a large bruise on my thigh from the little filly who I have secretly named Ninja since she is so fast and lethal! LOL

With Grace....so scary! But I am sure with some trailer training, she will be just fine. Don't let it discourage you after your great experience at the show

With Grace, what a story! Congratulations for doing so great at the show, a virtual shoulder to cry on for your horrible trailering experience, and an award for a great husband! I hope along with you that Kes can be trained to be well in the trailer.

CW, am I remembering right that you're taking your 1st ride with your leased horse tomorrow?

Thanks Blue, Corgi and Chrislynet - I really appreciate the support and virtual shoulders here!

CW - yep, I have a feeling something went wrong in a trailer in her past. She has no scars from an accident, but something has got her really freaked out. Good luck tomorrow, hooray for CW FINALLY getting to ride!

It's really late and I am just now catching up from today's posts. A shout out to all the newbies - welcome! It is great to hear your intro stories and see the new pics!

With Grace, You posted last night about 15 mins after I went to bed...! I had waited up for a while to see if there was news. Congrats on all your ribbons! I knew you could do it! I had missed the great advice to find a victim to vomit on if needed -- that's hilarious! I'm glad you didn't need to aim and fire, though

Sounds like poor Kes gets herself in a state in the trailer, huh? That must have been a near heart attack for you to find her like that. You can get her to trust trailers again, though - any horse who'd go through noodles in the trail class for you, without practicing, has to already trust you a lot. It may take some time, but it's not an uncommon thing to have to deal with.

Anyway, I'm so proud to hear that you did so well - a really great day for both of you, all in all, and Kes's boo boos will heal. Your DH is a keeper, too!

CW, I'm looking forward to your report tomorrow! I hope it's a great day and you get to ride to your heart's content!

With Grace: Patsy actually had scars from her trailer wreck. She did eventually get over it but I haul often. Maybe take her for a short trailer ride a few times a week if you can manage it. Make sure she isn't a "scrambler"...(a horse who falls when the trailer turns)...
I am so proud of you both!

Country Woman: I am pretty excited for you too...what time is your lesson on Ben?

Welcome Sinnabun!'

I am nervous because I found out I have to ride Sophie at a performance. Not in a drill just in a demo but she is soooo green. Won't even have 60 days Friday when we go.

Can you say stage fright? EEEEK

With Grace - That was indeed a day of highs and lows! Hats off to you for surviving. I ride one little Intro class at a schooling show and I'm exhausted; I wouldn't survive a day like yours. Poor Kes, she must have had a terrible experience in a moving trailer. It's interesting that she's calm before it starts to move.

Susan - Sophie looks good in your video. I was so busy watching her that I missed the bucked-off event. She's just a little hesitant, which is to be expected, but looks calm and attentive. She seems to have a good head on her ~ bet she's performing perfectly in a few weeks. Her coloring makes her very eye-catching in the formations.

Welcome to everyone who's new. You seem to come in bunches.
