    I'm so proud of Riley :) I might be bragging just a little...

    Ok, so forgive me here, but I'm so proud of how Riley went today at our first D grade competition in two years I just had to share!

    We placed, 1st, 2nd and 3rd and ended up D grade champions! He was so good, only took a couple of rails and had one refusal (my fault! I didn't want him to knock it so I tried to mess around with his stride too much :/)

    And I attached some photos for your viewing pleasure (or just for my own pleasure!) Warning: Slight picture overload!











    And one of us with our pretty new rug :)

    Thanks so much guys!

    It's a big step from where I was two years ago - I had a few bad falls and was scared to jump at all, luckily we worked through it and now (hopefully) the sky's the limit! Once I can stop trying to stride him exactly one bad habit I haven't quite gotten out of..
