Post #7278770

I should have some really awesome pictures and some great video from yesterday. I haven't blogged details yet, and I left my score sheets at home...

But here's the skinny of it.
Equitation w/t/c - only Adult Ammy in the ring. Judge said "good job sitting up solid & straight, horse needs more forward energy". She asked for canter on the long side, so I turned to a circle to get it. Was scolded for this decision, but stickit! :) I am riding Training Level for a reason!!! :)

Training Level #1 - 59%. (Yuck, I know)... BUT! Judge again.. Because that was FIRST place out of Six!

Training Level #2 - 61% (Yuck still, right?) BUT! Yet again... Judge... THIRD out of Seven!

Can you believe it? I felt like we did MUCH better! He didn't have a mental fart ride, he paid super good attention, didn't blink at the trains, and scored us FIRST PLACE!!! (Out of more than three! LOL) In TL2, I was smiling & laughing the WHOLE RIDE! I made the serious decision to smile, laugh, and ENJOY the test, no matter how she'd score us.

Wheeeee! Fun day overall.. now I'm ready to rest, and so is Ransom.
