i think we are ready to go novice [pix]

What do you think ?
She has also started her thing where when we jump small jumps she acts like a freak, but once they get higher she acts perfectly fine and good. I think she's telling me she wants to do novice !

We have an event coming up next weekend. Please critique both of us! Most of the jumps are novice, but there is a training or two in there =]

I wish I was to your level, and did xcountry so that I could give my input - but for now I'll just bomb you with uselessness :p
You both look so awesome together! If you feel like she's ready, you're ready, and your trainer thinks you both are ready, then do it! You look like you could ace it :)

The height seems to be no problem(: if she has the dressage in her, as well as she is in good enough shape, I bet you two will kick some serious novice butt! LOVE the brush jump too!

The hardest part of Novice isn't the jumping- it's the dressage. I could've taken my horse prelim before he was retired, but he couldn't even do novice dressage very well. Good luck you look great :)

Jumping-wise she looks like the height will be no problem, though she does look a bit chunky, to me. :P As long as her flatwork is consistent and she's behaving herself over fences and out on course I think you guys will be fine.

Well maybe just a bit chunky =P , she's lost a bit of weight since these pics and she's never been even at the high end of a 6. She lives outside so I don't mind her being a tad chunky right before winter, as the conditions usually slim her to a 4.5.

Her flat work has been awesome =] you can check out my other thread from our show in the eventing section

More than ready - you look like a cute team - As long as you can deal with the more technical combos I would go for it :)
