View Full Version : Our first show!

We did it! First show for me, first dressage show for my daughter with our 14yo OTTB Cody, so we just did walk-trot test A. She placed first with a 70 and I placed second with a 65!

He's very resistant to loading, so I was happy to get him on the trailer. Cut the time a little close getting to the show but he was a total pro once we got there.

Pictures - if the link works, I'm new at this.

Good for you and well done! I think that first show is so tough - breaking that inertia, getting over your trepidations. I admire your courage. You're a step ahead of me! The pictures worked.

How did Cody like the competition?

Thank you! I didn't know what to expect, not just the class but the whole experience, so decided to start small. Cody couldn't have been better. He has shown before but we just got him in October. I think I'm hooked, planning to do A and B as a division at the next show in a few weeks.
