Hands down, she was awesome!
Her very first time out at First Level, she stayed composed, focused, and, most importantly, inside the showring.
So happy with her!
Judge was Melissa Creswick. I liked her style when auditing at Starr Vaughn earlier this year (Read about it here: The Adult Amateur Clinic – Is It For You?) and really looked forward to showing for her. I knew she wouldn’t miss a thing!
And yep, the shortened warmup worked really well for us! More on the warmup later this week… With photos. (Thank you again to the best husband ever for taking pictures!)
Still posting the trot throughout. I’m looking forward to a better connected feel once there’s more strength and she can have her back up for me. We experiment at home for just a few minutes. Well, sometimes.
