My first show
Hi my name is Julia, im new here. Im 13 years old, and I LOVE horses. What girl doesn't? My dads in the navy, hes a recruiter, and we recently moved to NE. I started taking lessons this winter. I've taken them before. I year when I was 6-7, a couple horse camps, a couple trail rides, but nothing like this. I now know how to catch, lead, groom/feet, tack up, walk/trot/canter/hand gallop. I know you are probably thinking "so what? I did all that when I was 6!" But idk. I guess it's a pretty big deal for me.

So anyway, my intructor (Katy, 18) let me come with her to a show. We washed Riley (a white paint with super light grey splotches you can only see when he is wet) till he glowed, (of course he rolled again, and I rinsed him off) then put on his blanket and rainbow sleazy after banding his hair. He was GLOWING for the show. I got 2nd place in walk/trot novice (I wouldve gotten first but he decided it was time to do a lope) and 3rd in walk/trot open. I didn't place in egg&spoon though haha.
thats me :D

Sounds like you had fun, the pic looks great but it is pretty small.

I would never think "big deal . . ." I really think it's awesome that you are taking lessons and doing so much so youngj! Good for you. I had to wait to be middle aged to do all that. No matter, we both love horses. Your instructor sounds great and the pictured horse is brilliantly white!

Bend your elbows!!!
