    Default 32 on Beginner Novice CT (and pics!)

    I competed in my first ever CT at a schooling show last weekend. We got a 32 in BN A and went clear in stadium. Clearly, the mare is VERY bored at this height, but I'm a giant chicken, so there.

    And only two jumping photos (bummer!):

    Are you busily figuring out when you can do your first 3-phase after such a success? Welcome to the Dark Side
    OTTBs rule, but spots are good too!

    Great job! You look like a super pair. But you missed the most important part - did you have fun?!

    LOL! Yes I had fun!

    I'm a former jumper and have just been doing dressage for the last few years. I missed jumping competitively.

    Thanks, Bax! And everyone for the nice words. I'm so pleased with this little mare. She really is such a pleasure.

    And yes I'm thinking about my first horse trial ... But all of the ones are at least three hours away. Then I was considering a Lucinda Green clinic but I didn't make enough freelance money to support that (going to audit and do photos though!).

    So hopefully before February lol
