View Full Version : Filly's First Show Experience- Success!

I just wanted to post a thank you note to those of you who gave me wishes and tips on taking youngsters to their first show.

I took my 3 y/o DWBX filly to her first show on Saturday half expecting to ward off fits all day.

She behaved like a pro, no fits, no sore toes (mine of course)... nothing! I even rode her around the grounds and schooled in the warm up ring.

Everyone prompted me to take her in a class or two but I didn't push it.... I took the advice of everyone here and made the show day all about relaxation and pampering.

I swear she behaved better than she does at home!

So again, thank you for all the support! I am now excited for our next show.

Now, be careful. My guy is always an angel at a new venue, but his true naughty nature comes out once he's been there a few times and feels more comfortable to "let it all hang out". LOL.

Good for you giving your youngster a positive experience to add to the bank!
