took Thomas to a show yesterday,and there were 42 people in the 2"6 show jumping.never mind I went in and was nervous we jumped the first jump and I was really getting into it.he knocked down a jump but I didnt mind,because I was having a lot of fun.but he cleared all of the other jumps.the last jump was a huge jump with bright white fillers and bright red and white poles on top,he started to back of my leg but I kicked him on and he cleared it with miles to spare.
He wouldnt load to go to the show which is annoying,but I will give it to him,because he hasnt been on thr trailer in over 6 months.but he went on eventually with some help from a feed bowl and his feed hehe.the same thing happened at the show coming home,but again I had to use his feed and his feed bowl.
I thinki every week or a few times a week I need to do trailer training with him,because it is annoying sometimes.but I can understand why he maybe doesnt want to go on,because I wouldnt want to go on to a trailer and have to stand there for ages.
When I was travelling in my mums car I was watching thomas in the trailer through the back window,i didnt relise that the horses in trailers moved around so much and I was getting really worried,i was paniking lol.but then I relised that thomas was ok,and I settled down.
