We got third place in our show yesterday and I'm so excited!! Now we have a 1st place ribbon, 2nd place ribbon, and 3rd place ribbon! :D
Here are some pics from the show, I'll have more to post later (and better ones - my friend's camera is much better than mine!)
Warming up for cross country:
Doing a little cantering in between jumps on the cross country course:
And showing off our yellow ribbon :-)
I think the best part about the day (well besides the pretty ribbon of COURSE!) was the fact that I felt like my dressage test went really terribly...but in actuality, I ended up with a 33.5 which is my best score yet!!
At first I just chalked it up to having a judge who scores high in general, but my trainer apparently knows of him and said he is a TOUGH judge! So apparently my dressage is just getting better which makes me feel great! And no refusals or run outs whatsoever on either jump course...what a great day! :-)
how high to you show in?
Oh not high yet :-) Sandie and I both just started learning to jump about 3 months ago so we're newbies! So we're just in the Intro class now...only up to 1'. We can jump up to 2'6" already in stadium at home, but the cross country is what's stopping us from going to the next level just yet! ;-)
Next year the plan is to go up to the Very Green level which are 2' to 2'3" fences...and hopefully by then we'll have some more cross country experience under our belts!
PS you're from France? I am JEALOUS!! I've always wanted to go there...took French for 6 years in school and never got to use a word of it! lol :-)
Only 3 month and jumping that?!? thats great!
And yep, i live in France!
Congrats girl! In your show jumping picture your seat looks GREAT!
Major kudos to you and Sandy for coming so far in such a short time.
You guys look really good, and that is a very good Dressage score, especially coming from any judge judging in Ohio! (In our NE area of Ohio it is very hard to get good Dressage scores, I've noticed.)
NICE JOB!!! that is so cool how well you two are doing!! No moving near me ok?? lol.
haha thanks you guys!! :-)
Great start! you guys look like a great team and can only look for better things to come :)
