The annual 4-H horse show is on my birthday this year. (August 8th) ;)
Starting Tuesday I will be officially training for the show as Blu has never shown before. This gives me exactly a month until show day. My main priorities are his condition, headset, gaits, and brushing up on my skills.
First week consists of Ground Work and Trot Poles.
Second week is the same as first only adding Working in the Saddle, Maneuvers, Hill Work, etc.
Third week is the same as second only adding Patterns, Transitions, etc.
Fourth week is the same as third only adding anything that needs to be worked on most. Plus helping me get in 'shape' for the show.
I'm going to start graining Blu again with Ultium Competition Formula and I am thinking about adding a Muscle Supplement.
There are a few things in my way: Drill Team for Rodeo, Sports Camps, and the HEAT!
Sorry about such a long post. The main reason I am posting this is because I want your opinions on our progress. Every Tuesday, at least I hope, I'll post photos/videos and tell you of our progress. I would like a critique of my skills, his skills, and his conditioning. THANKS GUYS IT MEANS SOOOOOO MUCH! (feel free to ask any questions)
