Show Time! Dressge show
 
Duke and I went to a schooling show today and we did fairly well, Placed 2nd and 3rd with scores of 61 and 62. He's 21 and his movements not what it used to be and he can be fairly stiff; so we always get lower marks in the movement/suppleness areas. But I'm not complaining he's great to learn on. My trainer was the judge so I was a littler nervous, it was my first time not having her with me in warm ups with this horse.

It was quite an eventful dressage show regarding falls. A little boy fell off his pony in the morning and a little girl fell off in the afternoon. After she fell her pony deiced to take a few laps around the huge arena at a gallop, jumped in and out of the dressage arena a few times and then proceeded to get her reins caught around her leg before she slowed down enough for someone to catch her. Thankfully all horses and riders came away fine, maybe just a few bruised confidence levels here and there.

There were so many ponies/smaller horses at the show today, Duke was the largest horse there, I was terrified I would run over these little kids and their ponies in the warm up ring. Some literally came up to the bottom of Dukes shoulder. And he's only 16.3-17hh.

He spent the first half hour calling to his neighbors. Very vocal horse.

Duke Looks really good at the show. And what breed is sihr amir?

Muffin's eyes look like he's saying "im gonna get you for taking that picture...you just wait 'til i get outta this stall." for some reason i imagined he had an italian mob boss accent:lol:.

You look really good, gorgeous horse you've got there. & The picture of Muffin is so adorable. Makes me want to give him a cuddle. :P

Thanks, Muffins a mean little thing, she had a tendency to throw her riders, which explains why she's no longer ridden lol. No one that small is experienced enough to stay on her.

DixiesPaintedNova- I haven't a clue exactly what breed Amiir is, I'm just going to assume he's some variation of an arab, no one seems to know much about him.
