State Showjumping Pictures - We placed! Yay :)

So about a month ago, I took Riley to our first State Showjumping where we did D-grade (90cm-120cm) anddddd..... We got a third in AM5, fell off in the Power & Speed , came SECOND in Grand Prix and 4th overall!!!

I was so happy with his effort, he only knocked one rail in the third round of Grand Prix, on his second day of competition in 30 degree heat. The best part of it was, he only knocked it because I pulled him in 1 stride out of a 1 stride 1.1m double trying to beat the clock. He did so well, I can't fault anything he did!

My photobucket account won't work anymore, so I've attached the public facebook link if anyone's interested in having a look

Thanks guys! Now I just need to get past my mental block that 1.1m spreads = freeze up and go "oh crap"

We're only 6 points from C-Grade so I'd better get to work on that haha
