Horse Show Today! 12/4/2011

Had a schooling show at the barn today. I wasn't even planning on doing it, but got suckered in my by trainer, lol. I'm glad I did it though. Didn't do anything fancy or hard, just beginner eq. but thats a good place for me I think while I'm still working on my confidence issues.

The division consisted of two flat classes (one walk/trot, one walk/trot/canter) and two jumping classes (over crossrails) Amber was ridiculously full of herself today. But she settled down eventually, she was a good girl. My only regret of the day was messing up the sitting trot, I didn't keep enough leg on her so when I sat she thought I wanted her to walk and she broke to the walk right in front of the judge

Our results:
Walk/Trot: Third (stupid sitting trot)
Walk/Trot/Canter: First
Crossrail 1: Second
Crossrail 2: Second
Overall: Champion

Some pictures

And just a funny picture. I don't know what I was doing in the picture! But it looks like shes taking off and I'm screaming. Too Funny.

Lovely pictures. You obviously have a great horse, in every picture she is listening to you with at least one ear.
