    Tilly and I earned the High Point award for the open division for both days with scores of 71% and 72%!


    I could not be more proud of my pony!

    Thanks!

    And yes, I will be stealing Bucky after the championships. It works out because I have not one, but two comfort ponies for him. My mom will be taking RC the Wonder-Pony back to TX to start her own show career.
    This dressage stuff can be addicting....

    Cnm161... no one was talking about you... Just stealing your cart horse!
    We'll have to see if he can keep up with the ponies... They set a high standard.

    My mare is finally sound after a year of suspensory and stifle injuries. I had vets say she take her in for surgery and a coach who said she was done. I followed my gut and had a different vet look at her and I got a new coach who is just awesome and is all about having the horse move correctly.
    Yesterday I had a lesson and towards the end I was able to sit the trot, my mare was holding herself nicely and felt like she was just floating underneath me. I cried after my ride, I am just so happy I have my horse back! 24 hours after that ride and I still can't wipe the grin off my face or stop thinking about that feeling!!
