    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 :)

    I thought Laura had said you and Shelby aren't doing highpoint...
    And you're doing hunter hack??

    Im aiming for Hack towards the end of the season...and last time I checked I was doing High Point. I guess I'm the last person to find everything out? Peachy.

    Hahah I could be wrong that's just what I thought I heard. But I'm sure you'll be able to do hack by the end of the season ;)

    Laura told me only Julianne, Juliyana and Emilie were doing high point. Maybe that's changed, but yeah.

    Whoa! Where has time gone?!?! Well since last update I have found out that I am in Seinor classes instead of Intermediate which is just an age division change. And I get to compete with all my fairground 'buddies' this year. Oh joy. But all is going well! I think we have around a month until the first show (May 7th). Excited? Check yes! Ready? Check yes!!

    Next update with results from first show!

    Well our first show = complete! And Survived! I would say Honor and I did great for our first cantering show! In our first Hunt class he 'crowhopped' on me and ripped my hand open because I had a death grip on the reins. But in every class he was sprinting like it was the kentucky Derby. Oh how many people in each of my classes must have been dreading my thoroughbred. But I'm proud of him :) I would have to say our western classes were much better than our hunt classes, but that could just be because I was more relaxed and was having too much fun out there. I thought it was hilarious that all he wanted to do was race the other horses while still having a pretty good headset. Yeah I know, that seems like a bad thing, but I had complete control of him the entire time and he wasn't being dangerous or anything. He was just one very confused ex-racehorse. Next show is May 21 :) Lets hope for an even better show!

    Well my second show is this Saturday and it's one of the bigger (if not the biggest) of the season. I'm super happy that we get to finally wear our uniforms, as I feel 10x more confident when I get to wear my uniform. Wierd right? And I get to bathe and braid him, which also preoccupies my brain the night before. Honor and I are going to be in at least 7 classes, and its going to be a long day! But oh well, we're just going to have a blast :)

    Okay, well show #4 is complete. Show season has been going pretty good for Honor and I. We are done with the western chapter for a bit as we are picking up jumping. Yes, its official, we are finally going to compete in a jumping class. I'm so pumped and I think my horse is a bit happier too. And my trainer definatley is! Honors weight is finally at 'amazing' status. We're just working on muscles now. We actually placed in halter at the last show and beat someone. And we did pretty amazing in trail, but a bunch of western pleasure horses placed. Oh well, it was fun anyway! Well we have 3 shows left to go. Wish us luck :)

    Show season 2011 = Complete! And I couldn't have asked for a more perfect ending! We had done jumping twice before this last show and Honor was refusing every jump! But I got him over them this past weekend and got a 5th :) We also placed 5th in halter and that wasn't last place! Eep! So happy! We also got a 6th in pleasure, a Honorable mention (teehee) in Equitation and a 5th in Showmanship! So that season ended awesome-ly! We're going to keep pushing through the winter and hopefully have a great season next summer too!
