Day 2

Saturday was an up and at'em early day. Loaded car, ate breakfast and headed to the show.

We checked in and Lyssette got tacked up and I don't really remember what I did... Then I remember helping her wipe off  her boots and made sure she didn't need anything before her class.

I hung out for a bit and then got ready... I tacked Henry up and put him on the line to make sure he didn't have any wiggles in him (he is used to a much larger living space then the box stall he was in for the weekend). He had a few bucks and a few tantrums at the canter but not much so I got on.

I ended up doing 5 classes on  Saturday
Senior Pleasure- got 4th
Long Stirrup Pleasure- got 2nd
Really Low Hunters- didn't place
Beginning Hunters- didn't place
Long Stirrup Hunters- didn't place
*the OF classes had a lot of people in them and my goal was to have no refusals (success), go for lead changes (about 95% success) and have fun/not die (success). Henry wasn't amused by the 2 ft fences so next show we will be doing 2'6" per my trainer.

Henry was calm cool and collected through everything. He was strong but I never felt like he was being bad. Oh how I wish I should show in the Mikmar lol!

After Lyssette and I were done with our classes we cleaned up the boys, fed, packed the car and headed to he hotel. We ate, cleaned and got ready for Sunday.

Hubby came up with Bayley which was awesome!!! I was missing them both so it was totally refreshing to see them. He took some pictures on his phone so enjoy :)

Absolutely love this!


  1. Yay! Love the last picture! SO cute.

    1. Isn't she so cute!?!?! I wasn't feeling well cause it was so hot and it was "that time of the month" and she came and crouched next to me and it melted my heart!!!

  2. I like the picture with the ribbon on his face.

    1. I didn't even know that Sean was taking it.. I was making myself laugh lol

  3. Aww, the photos are great! Sounds like you had a good time!

  4. Love the pictures! Glad you met your goals and didn't die lol!

  5. Goals met and fun - awesome! I am convinced Mexican food and margaritas equal success at horse shows :)

  6. Its always a good thing when you survive a show ;-)

  7. Looks way fun! Cool that Bayley and your husband could come. :)

  8. Sounds like a great day :) Love the pics!
