    I swore my AA horse would be named No Excuses, sadly I got a green horse so I had excuses.

    Hey, they stole some of them from me!!! I remember going in one of our first trail classes and at the same time, they were starting a driving/carriage class in the adjacent ring. My horse got through the trail obstacles but she was certainly distracted- she'd never seen horse drawn buggies before. Also it is certainly true that some judges like my horse and others don't. Especially when I have shown in a show put on by the QH folks riding my OTTB. But she did win one of her classes to my great surprise. I also had a show where my horse commenced to go about the course like Mr. Toad's wild ride- totally amped up and crazy, doing leaps of exuberance. I attributed it to lack of work as she was coming off a period of limited exercise. We usually do a two to three hour trail ride the day before a show in an effort to settle her down. And then there was the time that I had a big brain fart and completely forgot my course part way through- and couldn't remember it- that was embarrassing! I blame my feeble middle aged brain. I LIKE having lots of excuses!!!! But I also make an attempt look at my role in what happened too.
