A Few More Show Shots

Just because I don’t head out and compete super often.

Best to make the most of it! ๐Ÿ™‚

And because my husband was so nice and a super star to stick around in the heat for both tests, taking so many pictures.ย  Very sweet!

The counter canter loop – she did it well (go Gray Mare!) but I piloted just a bit too shallow, not quite hitting X.ย  Easy to do, you just want to get back to the corner ๐Ÿ™‚

Next up will be a post on some training issues – yes, with pictures of all the “uglies!’ย  Figured many of you will recognize a lot of it, and I think it’s so cool when you want to stand on the sidelines and yell out helpful hints.ย  I’ll promise to try whatever you have to say!

    1. So happy you like it! She has a few moments here and there where she both looks and feels really good. Can’t wait for her to grow up and mature and become everything I hoped she would be ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Yeah… Sometimes easier to ride “bold” at home. In a test, there’s always that chance of “overshooting”, my prior specialty in turning up the C-Line, so, therefore, the shyness around X in any type of loop.
      I really want to head out and try this again end of August! Not sure we’ll get to go out there again so soon though, we’ll see ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Thank you!!!
      A heads up, for the longest time, whenever I try to click in to your site, either through phone or through desktop, it says that the site cannot be found. Have you taken it down?..


    1. Yeah, felt like she really did try her best. Not sure about you, but canter lengthenings, plus trot, are harder for us.
      I think Carmen has a little more Git Up N Go…
