2 foot? 2 easy!


Went to a little schooling show on Saturday. Two jump rounds and a flat. 2' course, and my first non-green rider division :D Sadly, no other adults showed, so I had to compete with awesome kids.

The arena itself was covered and apparently they have no air flow and skylight things so it was like a sauna. I was hot. Sam was hot. So he was behind my leg, I was apparently too hot to really make him go - and I didn't bring a crop because I never end up using them at shows. But he was good and calm so I think we're getting a trend here.

It was fun and another rider from my barn came with her horse (Oly). So that made it fun too.
Sam and I ended up placing 3rd and 4th for the jump classes and 3rd for the flat.

The best part was that the jump height wasn't even a thought in my head. Onward to 2'3"!!

Oly's mom, our trainer, & me before our rides
Aww, we are so cute
Aww, we are so TINY!
