|I don’t want to stand here for a photo…. I’ll just wriggle over here away from that camera…|
|No photos please.|
|Fine! You can have a photo but quick I want to race everybody!|
Second class was best pony club mount. We didn’t place here either because somebody still wanted to go fast. You can see below just how eager my horse is. Yeah… he doesn’t get out much lol.
|Leaving the ring without a ribbon, yet again (only because there was no class for cuteness ha)!|
Third class was the rider class, and he had started to settle. I think the judge felt sorry for me because she let me win first place here. Despite my apparent inability to control my wildebeest, I must have been sitting quite pretty. You can see below though I had that sit-back-legs-forward-and-off-slow-the-f-down seat going on.
We moved into the indoor arena for best walk, best trot and best combination. Oscar has never been in an indoor in his entire life, he’s an outdoorsy type and doesn’t even like warm cosy stables. However, he was a darling and proceeded to win the best walk class. He must have been super happy to be in the ribbons because he wanted to rub all over the judge to say thanks. Of course I didn’t let him, but he gave it a good try. Proud mumma to embarrassed mumma in 0 to 30 seconds.
Overall it was a fun morning, we were only there for a couple of hours after arrival and Oscar had a blast. There’s another fun day next month and I think we’ll go for the jumping instead of the flat. For $2 you get to do a practise round, not judged or anything. I think that will be super useful to help me overcome my show jumping nerves before the winter series kicks off. I doubt I’ll do the winter show jumping anyway, but just in case!
