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. :)
