Horse show was great! Henry was awesome, so laid back! He did 8 classes... 4 with me and 4 with Juliana.
I did 21 inch Hunters, Under Saddle and two Eq Flats. As the day went on he got stronger and stronger in the canter- despite be working him between classes to "tire" him out. He wasn't bad per-say but he was SUPER strong at the canter to the right. No matter how many half halts and whoas I did it didn't help- I tried to be soft to aggressive, yep not doing anything. And he was so good in the warm up sooooo I was a little pissed at him. You know that feeling of oh yeah we are going awesome, he is being good, I feel good and them BAM canter to the right and it wasn't horrible but we lost it there. Oh well... theres always another show.
I am thankful for NO stopping or big freak outs.
Next time I will probably do all 6 classes in the division or maybe Juliana will do the first and then I will do the next 5... that is if I can afford it :)
A barn buddy's husband took some pictures so I am eager to see them but for now this one will have to tide you over...
