Hmmm. Competition was ok - Bundy was good, in general. We did a pretty good hack workout despite the fact the surface was reallllly deep and I didn't have my spurs (They aren't allowed at PC). I honestly thought I would win or come second, but I got fifth. One of the girls who beat me muffed a flying change and went half a circle on the wrong lead while I made no mistakes. Some of the others commented I should have won as well. Ah well.
The rest was ok. There was a derby - A mix of CC and showjumps. I kind of forgot that Bundy has never been over a CC jump in his life - Lol! He was really good - He leapt the first jump about 3X it's height and I almost fell (I was in my stock saddle - makes jumping difficult!) and every jump after that I gave him the rein and grabbed my saddle with one hand, lol. He was looking at every jumo but bless his heart he didn't stop, just leapt them really high! He did stop at one but I knew about two strides out he would so Ijust let him have a sniff and he took it the next time no worries. It was a fairly big and scary one, and downhill to boot. I was very proud of him :]
So now he is out for a break until after winter.
