Wow. An update! Almost a month later. Annabelle has been doing AMAZING. Aside from the cut on her leg, which is healing, finally, she has been actually going. We've really been getting her used to staying at a fast pace on her own, because she's been relying on me to push her.


AND, our jumping career has begun. Even though we've only really been doing cross rails, and a small vertical once or twice, I believe she could go higher, if I wanted to. But not yet. There's a show next week, an English show, for kids like me. Who have no show experience whatsoever. It's a walk trot class, but I think if I really want to do it, I can. My trainer really wants me to show too. Heck, I want to show, but I get so nervous and scared that I'll mess up. That's probably the only reason. Haha. More updates sooon.

Well, first show was a success! Surprisingly, I wasn't nervous at all. It was kind of weird, haha. At first Anna was acting like any normal horse would but soon calmed down. She did really well! We did walk trot, because it was my first show and we got two firsts and a second. The second was for trail. She isn't completely great at trail, so I'm happy with a second.
She bucked a little in trail actually! Just a little bump and nothing major. The horse that went before us actually bucked too. It was funny. The other two classes we went in were hunt seat equitation and hunter under saddle..? I believe? She did really well in those too. The judge told me we were flawless. I just kind of stared at her.

Overall, my first show was awesome. And I think I plan on doing more in the future.

Alrighty, the weather here has been crazy yesterday and today. It feels like England! It's just been raining all day long. Thank god my mom and I got to Annabelle before it started raining again to change her bandage. She was really giddy for some reason. Maybe because it was cold and rainy and it was feeding time? Probably. She really wanted to trot back to her stall.
I haven't been able to ride her as often, which is kind of disappointing. Annabelle is a good horse and I love riding her. And jumping on her is fun too.. Other than when she bucks afterwards. She gets all crazy over them! It's weird.
