Showed my horse!!! w/ picture
A while back I posted about being so nervous that I was panicky and not able to show.
Well, after working on my mind for several months; making sure my boy is in tip top health, I went to a show. I was a little nervous, he was VERY up and showey but I had a lot of fun. Even a bit of leaping into the lope in the make up ring didn't scare me off!!!
I'm pleased with his performance...although getting used to riding a 'show' horse is going to be a challenge. He's a totally different horse at shows that he is at home.
Here's a pic of us. My feet are too far forward...a bad habit. But, I'm sitting up much straighter. I thought I was smiling the whole time but this pic looks like not. Anyway, I like the way he looks. He sets up and goes like this all by himself. No training aids beyond grazing bit and romel reins.
