    Moving Up! First 2'9" Show!

    This weekend is my first show at 2'9"! My goal is to do the Adult Amateurs so this is an exciting step for me! A year ago last weekend I did my first ever show on my horse at 2', so I am very proud to have moved up this much in this year. My trainer thinks that it will be easier for me to do the higher divisions because my horse has a really big stride and I always struggle to make him fit down the 2'6" lines, and she thinks they will be longer in the main ring.

    I always go to these shows, and this is my first time I will get to show in the main ring! There is also a show next next weekend that includes a 2'9" derby, and my trainer says I can do that too!

    Have fun. If your having trouble with the big stride move down a division cause the higher the jump the deeper in the horse will land and there will be less space for you strides.
