Show from this weekend :)

Fiona and I at a horse show this passed Saturday & Sunday. She was a rock star!

We did three flat classes (Pleasure, Go-As-You-Please, Equitation) and one jumping class (18"). My lower leg has been a wreck when jumping at home, so I decided to stay in the 18" class, despite being encouraged to do the jump off . Fiona could handle the jump-off well, but I wasn't willing to let my fluffy buns smack her back if I got a loose lower leg on her. Showing makes me tense as it is, so I took our 18" and was very happy with it.

I think we surprised a handful of folks with Fiona and gaming. We've done a butt load of groundwork these last few months and she's been super responsive and supple... Slow and Steady wins the race (sometimes). We don't do speed events competitively, but it helps us for end of the year points :)

Enjoy - and thank you for watching!

Thank you! I was super proud of her, she still has her baby moments and we fortunately had some nice competition to help her get used to that environment and multiple horses around her :)

Good luck with your jumping show! It's so much fun :)

^ Absolutely! One reason I like the schooling shows so much. My nerves get the better of me, and these shows let me relax and still enjoy participating without being absolutely terrified lol.

Me too, I guess I shouldn't have been trying to force myself back into horses. At the risk of sounding extreme, she was my last hope in staying into horses. Looking forward to the next time you get to ride her, she's gotten better, but still a "Look before thou leap" kind of horse ;)

Aww you guys look so sweet together! It was really nice watching you ride. It shows that you care about your horse! I get kind of sick watching people run barrels most of the time because they're yanking the horse's head around and beating it to make it go faster. Like... why? To be macho? It was great to see you guide her and then let her open up and run cuz she wanted to!
