I have a show this weekend... *nervous* I'm in 12 classes between my 2 ponies!
Cool! I'm going to look into it! :)

Have fun at your show! Sounds like an exhausting but fun day!

Hey guys :) I haven't been on for a few days because I haven't had time! Mum had a guest who has little kids and so I spent all my time babysitting :/ I love kids, don't get me wrong, but it was intense!

The mare I was riding for her owner, that went back to her owner, is coming back to me again. The incredible yo-yo horse :/ it's very frustrating because when she goes back she invariably loses weight (due to owner's daughter refusing to feed her) and then I have to get her back up to weight again, which means a loopy horse while I'm having to feed her up to make her gain weight, and when she's in ideal condition she's a lot more energetic and forward than she is when she's skinny (obviously)... but I'll admit I did expect owner's daughter to just continue on refusing to feed her, so I did expect she would probably come back again. Just frustrating because I was "reliably" informed she wouldn't come back to me, so I started looking for another project, only to have to let all these owners I've made contact with down because Violet's coming back.

I'm still going to keep looking though because as much as I like Violet I hate flatwork and that's all she can do atm with her current level of education... would rather get something that has the flatwork but needs work on jumping.

So, I've been talking to my parents. And if all goes well, I'll be showing August fifth with my cousin (best friend). We've been wanting to show together since we began riding, so this is great and we're very excited. We're still waiting for the prize list to be posted, but I'm figuring I'm definitely going to do walk/trot/canter and maybe something else, and my cousin thinks she would do walk/trot/canter and then a jumping class.

I've also been thinking about asking my instructor if I can do an open lease next month, where I would ride a horse who is available when I come out. My father and I were talking and we also want to ask if I'm too big to ride a pony named Pepsi. He's a little speed demon who loves jumping.

That's SO exciting! You will do amazing!!!

And my show went well! It was so hot, I scratched a few classes, but otherwise we did okay :) We got 2nd in Pony Pleasure, and 2nd in Walk Trot (lost to the same horse/rider... ). Then for halter classes, we got 4th in Showmanship and 3rd in gelding pony halter. My shetland, Star, got first in the Single Driving class, but she didn't place in mini halter..
Got 4th in Poles, but didn't place in barrels (SO tired from the heat). Then I scratched the rest of our games classes because Putts was really sweaty and TIRED. SO overall, it was a successful show. :)

Thanks, I sure hope so!

I'm glad your show went well! You did really well, you should be proud, especially since it was so hot.

Good job DoubleS!!!!

I have a new question to ask everyone XD
Do any of you guys do sports other than horseback riding? I'm starting crew, and I might do fencing, I'm not totally sure though.

I run, and I hope to register for a local race soon.

What's crew?
