I'm really, really, really excited! Saturday, I'm going with a friend and my instructor for my first official cross-country schooling session! We've done lots of unofficial messing around over logs and such near the trails where I board him, but this will be the first time at a real live cross country course! :eek:

Maybe one day I'll get up the nerve to actually compete in a real live event! :lol:

In the meantime, does anyone have any thoughts, suggestions, etc. about how to make this as successful as possible for me and my super awesome TB?

That's great, have fun! I know it's a little nerve wracking, but keep a smile and have a great time. Keep us posted!

I think being as relaxed as you can and just have fun are the keys to success!

Okay, I'm totally and completely in love with cross country now! I wasn't sure I would be... but I'm convinced now! :D

And thank you for the advice! I really just focused on having fun and trusting my boy to take good care of me... and he definitely did. ;)

I'll post pics as soon as I get them...
