We had a fun day at the show and, despite a few mistakes on my part and some stiff competition, I managed to finish in Second and Third place. I would have loved to bring home another blue ribbon, but I can’t complain. Today I added a red and a yellow ribbon to my collection. Not bad!
He’s a clip from Intro Test A:
My score was 65.3% for Test A, and 65.6% for Test B. On my score sheet the judge wrote, “Steady and obedient horse and correct geometry. Now just add more energy for scores in the 70s!!”
I’d have to agree. Secret was sweet and mellow today, which is a good thing. I like that much more than when she is jumpy! But when she is a bit slow I need to be able to pick up the pace.
That’s part of the fun of showing. You never know what will happen and you have to be ready for the unexpected. I’m glad we went to the show today and I look forward to the next time.
