Dartanion's 2009 Show Season

I want to set a few goals for Dartanion & I. Our strong points are English but we do show in Showmanship, so this year I would like to place better in showmanship. I never bothered to teach him to pivot because I was just doing showmanship for fun but now I want to give everyone a run for their money. I want to win the amature English buckle and the Hunter cup for the Region 18 series and I also hope to win the region 2 buckle as well. I also plan on becoming CSHA champion next year. I got 3rd this year and 4th the year before. I forgot one of my courses this year which sucked because we won champion hunter hack but we fell out of the over all CHampion running thankx to me losing that course. I would like to win at least one showmanship class with more than 3 or 4 people in it lol. EEEPPP I hope this doesn't make me sound like a mean or evil person, I enjoy winning but I'm not going to be all mean to someone if they beat me lol shoot then I get another chance to improve . I also would like to get our flying lead changes down without his need to buck LOL. Ok that is all for now I have to get to work :P bye and nice meeting everyone.

So my car wont start again. We just bought a new fuel pump for the bloody thing and it wont start again so I haven't seen my horse for 4 days now. I'm going to be seeing him this Sunday because I have an award ceremony that mom & dad want to go to so they are going to give me a ride to see D before the ceremony. Lucky for me D is so laid back I could leave him in his stall for a month (never would mind you) and he would ride exactly the same way lol. So we can't work on our flying lead changes or showmanship which sucks but I can't wait to get this silly car fixed.

Just made a new ticker and thought it would add it here so I can check how much longer I have to go till the first show of the 2009 Season I'm so excited and can't wait to start showing again! We have about 3ish weeks to perfect out showmanship, flying lead changes, and I want to work on more horsemanship patters, also side passing lol.

SO I got dad to film me riding Dartanion & Zilly today. I am going to post pics as soon as the camra works because it's being a pain in the butt right now. D did VERY WELL we had some lead changes with little to no bucks WOOT ^_^ so that rocked and then he did some very nice jumping. My dad couldn't get the camra to work so he took some stills that I wont get for a while which kind of sucks but I will have tons of pics for everyone .

I just saw my ticker! *Gasp!* only 24days hehe I'm excited. I hope my car gets fixed soon so I can get out there and work on showmanship. I believe that is our weakest spot at this point in time. D is doing a lot better, me on the other had not so sure lol. I will be sure to post pictures and video if possible. If anything I'd like to post my showmanship pattern . I also got to speak with our regions trail trial leader and they are having a clinic in March so hehe excited about that . OH and Dartanion & I won 3 year end champion awards! I am so proud of him, I put pictures of them under the "picture" area of the forum. The titles we won were:

2008 18-34 English Champions (flat only)
2008 18-34 English Overall Champions (Flat & Jumping)
2008 English Overall Champions woot woot ^_^

I'm so proud of D, our region leader also said that they do not plan on sactioning(SP) their shows with our sister region (18 ) so I will be in two different english/western buckle series along with trail trials and letting my fiances neice show D in 10&Under. Which reminds me we don't have a lot of time to get her, her hunt coat
