We had our first foray into Training Level on 12 May and this was also combined with our first show off property.
Thehorse did great while I flubbed my TL 1 test; had a brain freeze for a moment and mixed up the right lead canter circle for Intro C with the right lead canter circle for TL 1. Still, came out of that test with a 63.750 after 2 points were deducted for MY error. I apologized profusely to the horse and gave him a half dozen peppermints in the time before the second test.
Our warmup for TL 2 was interesting with him anticipating the canter. Still, he went on to the ring and being the ham that he is, settled down and this time, I remembered the test :) and he did well. We tied for 2nd with a barn mate of mine and scored a 72.321.
No more Intro level for us...this final show at our property for the Spring series I am ditching Intro and going with Training Level all the way :)
