So the biggest show of the year for our city was this last weekend (it's this weekend too but I could only afford one weekend). My mare and I were in the Long Stirrup division. The first day went really well. I got a first in my Eq. over fences, then we got a third in our hunter over fences because she broke into the trot around a corner for 2.5 seconds, and we got a 3rd in our flat class. Not too shabby. Then Sunday we had an awesome jumping round. I mean AWESOME. Got all of our changes beautifully, all of our strides, etc. We had one jump that was a little long but other than that it was great. An after all of my competitors added strides or missed changes, we thought we had it in the bag. Come to find out the judge that day was the same judge that is part of the barn as one of my competitors (she placed another lady from her barn higher than me even though she fell off and was dismissed from the ring last show). SOOOOOO she placed the lady that added strides and missed a couple lead changes over me and we got second. But second is good. Then we got a third in another flat class and a second in the Eq. flat class. Over all we took Reserve Champ for the weekend! I was very proud of us. My horse and I are taking at least a week off to relax.

Congratulations!! Do you do a lot of shows in the summer?
Thanks! Actually we won't have our next show until August. Our first show of the year was in April, and my mare and I took Reserve there as well. This May show was the only A rated show in NM for the year. Then we have the August show, one is Sept. and one in Oct. Do you show?
