Wow, I almost nearly forgot about this thread :O But not much has honestly happened in the time that has passed. Well except for the gap in between showseasons is comming to an end. We ARE competing in Intermediate classes this season. All season! I honestly think I am a lot more ready now than I thought I was last summer. And thank heavens Intermediate division is small where I am showing at! Then I get to move up to the giant division of Seinor next year. Yeah not looking forward to that one :P But this season we are doing it all. Were doing Hunt Seat, Western, Hunter Hack and obviously Showmanship (Fitting and Showing) and Halter. Honor is in much better shape than he was in last summer, and I'm pretty confident going into this season. Our first show is a non-show clothes show, which I'm slightly nervous for because it is also double points for our year end high point award! This is also a first for us as a team. But were finally ready for it, and that's all that matters!
I also got a new saddle in the process of this lovley Michigan winter! I had to sell my Shire Dressage saddle :( (It nearly killed me inside) and I bought an All-Purpose Wintec. Buuuut I'm buying a super nice leather girth, so I don't feel AS bad about giving up my pretty leather saddle.
So, now we move on in our little adventure. I like to look at as going into a new battle! Who knows where this season will take us :)
