We tried one of those little trail competitions and they placed a right angle of parallel ground poles right by the judges little shed - Looby can back up between those blindfolded at home but all she wanted to do was keep turning round to check out the people sitting inside because she really didn't trust them at all
Flo got so hyped up at the first few shows she went too we were pretty much asked to leave!!!
Glad to hear we aren't the only ones...lol. However, there were quite a few other horses there that were really acting up. We tried to steer clear of them.
I rode Snickers today in the arena and cantered her quite a bit....she acted nothing like yesterday. Yesterday, she was throwing her head up, crow hopping and just not her usual calm self at all. So, it must have been the atmosphere.
Funny how she was so calm with all the commotion at the parade. Maybe because all of the horses were acting as they should be and not all frantic and she could read their moods.
