2 Classes

I need 3 coffees, 6 horses and like 12 million dollars

So Henry loaded and traveled great.... got to the show and it was a hurry up and wait situation. Like always right?!

They had done all of the flat classes that were in my realm so I singed up for two 2'6 classes to warm up and then was going to do the 2'9/3 classes.

Tacked Henry up and got on... he was HIGH lol so I just rode and rode and rode. We jumped some warm up jumps thinking that it was almost the 2'6 stuff... only to find out that they were going to wait days for ponies and then water/drag. 

Hung out some more and then did a few more jumps before I went in and did my two rounds... 

The first round was great except homeboy didn't want to do one lead change BLAH! 

Second round was even better, then homeboy knocked a rail in the last line.... AHHHHHH for real Henry?!!?

We got a 5th in the 2'6 Hunters, despite our lead woot! To bad he didn't do a nice clean one!

They still had a million 2'6 round to go and no one, including me, wanted to wait around for hours in the heat to do the 2'9/3' so we packed up and went home... 

All in all Henry was good, a bit of a turn to warm up, but good... next show we shall do more. 



Maybe I will joing SAHJA next year and do the 2'9/3' stuff and try to get a tri ;) Henry and I need one of those! lol

  6. I also experienced the whole hurry up and wait nonsense. I have decided I will not be doing that anymore. Good on you for leaving. I wish I had just left as well. Congrats on having a good boy and a good class.
