Calling dressage riders, I'm showing 1st level this fall/winter!!
I'm so excited to start showing Ollie this fall and winter!
We have competed in two schooling shows this summer and he passed...we both passed my trainer and my own expectations my miles! I couldn't be more proud of my little man.

This summer we showed training level and small green jumpers locally on island.

This fall and winter we will be doing more!! We will be showing first here at home again in October and then after the New Year or maybe before depending on money and scheduling start going off island to Auburn to show at Donida.

My trainer will be hauling out her baby for the first time off island, and Ollie's first time showing off island, neither horse have been to Donida but its Allen prep and set up for summer 2014 when we bring Ollie out to his first recognized E.I shows in hopes to get qualifying scores for 2014 championships!!
This will be the biggest thing we have ever worked on and a level I have never shown at before!

As well as these shows I'm going to be hauling up to my trainer (who is judging the October show!) a couple times over the winter with my mom trainer and her mares for more help. I always get so much from her lessons! :wink:

So I'm starting this thread for any tips you guys may have along the way!
Wether it be from grooming, diet, exercises for Ollie or me or both! To tips for when we are in the ring!!

Feel free to ask me any questions, my best friend gets back from her camping trip tomorrow so I will start weekly or bi weekly videos to show progress and share what we'd are doing for better help!

Here it a quick photo of the two of us tonight, saying thank you for your help and support!

when in October is your Vashon show? it would be fun to ferry over to watch!

I will miss the Lake Washington Saddle Club show this Sept. (but their shows are very small time anyway). Seems like ages since I've done or watched any dressage. you'll do well, I'm sure!

Caroline, I would be so so so happy if you could do that! It would be an early morning for you to come all the way from woodinville area! Let me know if you are going to come, I would love it and you could finally meet the little boy!!

First off, congrats!!! I am very excited for you!

When I first read your posts I was happily surprised as I'm from WA too, so I know of all these things you speak of! ;)

My horse and I tagged along with some friends to a small dressage show a little bit ago and we ended up placing first in both of our training classes- he did so well that I decided we pursue it! I would love to get to where you are someday!

I'm sure you will get plenty of tips for the shows from your trainer and other members, I just wanted to say good luck and keep us posted on how things go!!
