Horse show this weekend!!

Hello! So this past weekend I was at a "A" circuit horse show. Both days I did 1m imm j/o and a 1m speed class. The first day I got a 4th in the imm j/o and it was with 1 rail and 26 time faults in the jump off!! 26!! There where 34 people in that class. I forgot where I was going to I circled and circled and was like OH it was right in front of me. When I was done I couldn’t stop laughing it was one of those omg did I really just do that moments. I thought 100% I was out of it but no only 2 other people went clear after me. The course was lots of bends and roll backs, the only straight lines where the related distances. It was a hard course considering it was a 1m class. So only 4 went clear. The speed class I hit a rail but was fast, I was about 8th but then got bumped out.

Sunday my parents came to take videos and those have been posted and the classes went great. I had a rail in the imm j/o because I went down the line too fast, but the speed I got a 3rd and there where 48 people in that class. I’m not on a speed horse, she has a big stride but my thought was if I go clean I will do well. People where too focused on the speed part and not the keeping the rails up part. The whole way around the course I praising my horse, it was quite funny. And in that class I forgot where I was going and I was looking way to the left and my horse was going to the jump. Lucky for me it wasn’t a roll back turn the jump was right in front of us but I just went blank trying to figure out where to go. In the video you can see she’s saving my a** and seems to know where to go. It wasn’t until 3 strides away did I even look.

It was a great weekend. A girl who I used to be in a barn with who was a total “mean girl” to me I beat in the classes I placed in and she didn’t place at all. Not that beating her was my goal or anything but maybe she’ll just leave me alone now. She would say I suck at riding my horse is this I am that exc exc. But I have mixed emotions because she is on a phenomenal horse, and she is a beautiful rider…. Makes me a little curious on why she’s dropped down from 1.20 to 1m and why she wasn’t doing clear rounds? She used to do the 1.10 as warm up rounds for her real classes?? I won’t put much thought into it because I really don’t care but it’s just odd….

I am very excited this has been a great year so far, I was hesitant about this show but I went and did well. My motto for showing has been: All winning is is Preparation and opportunity, I was watching in wellington Nick Skelton had a clear and fast round in a big Sunday night class, last jump horse refused. You can be 100% prepared for a show but you need a lot of luck and opportunity to place!

I'll post some up but my parents where only there on Sunday and I love my dad so much but he thinks just because you have a digital camera you can shoot randomly. His theory is take 100 shots and keep 3 .... Well he shot about 120 and I like 4.. Lol there was a photographer there so hopefully I can get some of those
