Doing some quick micro blogging during the show 🙂
Friday I got in first, got our stalls unlocked and put out shavings while trying to calm my spaniel down from his worried mania. I guess my springer (my buddy for the weekend) forgot what shows are like since it’s been so long. He kept wanting to go back to the car… Sorry buddy, were here all weekend – but I digress!
Lunged Simon for a bit but could only trot since that particular warm up ring is small and has giant metal pilings in the middle of it. He may have run into the piling… Twice… We are special.
Changed clothes, and bundled up lots if layers because Texas decided it should be 36 and raining this weekend. The good news is that the show is indoors, but the bad news is that I’m showing in the not heated arena. Brrr!
At first he was pretty scared of the ring because it has sheer panels to the outside and it was very cold/windy. He settled pretty quickly though and we jumped around.
The jumps were really intimidating me, but I tried not to ride like they were. I half succeeded. Below is the video of the last course we did.
He was really good – I just need to trust myself. Not sure if I will do the 2’6″ or not but it will be fun all the same 🙂
