Sally's Show Journal!! ♥♥
 
So this is a journal where i'll keep all my shows/placings/training if i can be bothered etc. I've already mentioned week before last weeks show in the show section up there ^^^ so i'll start with this weekend =)

This weekend is Bairnsdale Gymkhana (Gymkhanas in Aus are like shows but for horses only and are held by pony clubs. These are my main compatitions). I'm taking both Oscar (who i got out of the paddock last saturday after a two year break =S) and my beautiful boy Barney!! =D I dont have many events, only about 12 for both horses, 18 events maximum. i hope we do well,, but im just taking oscar so he can have a look around instead of "in it to win it" type thing. I'll update on monday probably!!

Hey!! That's a great idea! something you can do (if you get bored like I do) when I post my placings I will high light my placing the color of the ribbon. I know dorky BUT it's fun for me lol.
Example:

Halter 6&over: 1st out of 5
English Pleasure 14-17: 2nd out of 6

YAY!! i did quite well at Bairnsdale,, all things considered!! i got:
1st in ridden stockhorse (on a thoroughbred)
1st in my Pony club rider
1st in pairs (with my bf, will =))
3rd in team of three (with will,, hannah and tayla)
3rd in pleasure hack
3rd in pony club mount and
3rd in my open rider

all in all, quite a good day (considering i was in hospital not 3 days before after falling off pony) and i was very pleased with the result =D It was quite a boring day though, nothing exciting or out of the ordinary happened.. Except a girl who was in my rider class look about 13 and when i asked a friend how old she was, they said 18!! i was shocked... i could have sworn she was about 13 or 14!! i dont know when my next event is, but i'll keep you updated!!
