My first reining/cowhorse show!

Hi all!
I just wanted to share some pictures from my first show in reining/cowhorse, it was just a local schooling show but I was more nervous than a long tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs! We actually had fun[ after the first half of the first pattern, I relaxed and got over myself, Even though my trainer told me that winning any class shouldn't be the highlight of a show, its if you had fun and did your best, and don't get me wrong I had a hell of alot of fun most of the day, It just felt awesome to win the 2 classes I entered (Youth Stock Horse, and Beginner Stock Horse), They are defiantly not legendary scores, 60.5 and 61.5, but I'm proud of Comanche and I!
Does anybody else have first-show experiences/pictures to share?
I hope my pictures show up its my first time trying to upload them into a post!

Very serious/funny face while practicing lead departure


Very happy at the end of the day :)

Fun, congrats!

Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising which tempt you to believe that your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires courage.
