Red face Our first show!!

I took my 5 1/2 year old standardbred mare to a show yesterday, she has been undersaddle for 9 months (and a week) and I have owned her for 9 months!

When I first got her she couldn't trot or canter and we went to our first show yesterday (my first show and her first show!)

Led Mare/Filly over 15.2hh she got 2nd in her class and the reserve champion led mare.
Smartest on parade 18yrs and younger I got 2nd
Best newcomer under saddle I got 1st
Novice ridden female I got 1st
Ridden female over 15.2hh I got 2nd
Novice rider I got 2nd
Rider 18 years and under I got 1st
Best pleasure I got 2nd

She did so well, she was relaxed happy and listened to what I asked of her and did it every time! She was the greenest horse in her classes.

This is one combination of green + green that didn't end in black and blue!
Her advertisement when we bought her was very false, but we fell in love.
I couldn't have done this without my amazing coach though!!

I just wanted to share this with other horse-y people!!

I had so much fun, I didn't stop smiling all day!
I wasn't expecting anything other than to go out there and have fun with her!

Congratulations! It must be such a good feeling placing that well after your background with her. Well done!

Thanks :) I love knowing that we have come so far the judge said to me several times that it was so obvious my horse loved me and tried her heart out for me.
