Were Back!!!

What a long show.  The weather was either really nice or awful.  No in betweens. The first day we were there, the horse were just plain NUTS!  Fortunately,the next day the weather chose to be nice and the ponies settled down to normal.
The first day we showed, we were the last of the day, finishing up around 6:00 p.m.
Good news is that day the GJA and I did pretty good.  We got a 4th, and a 6th in the Novice Am HUS and it was a pretty big class.  He was pretty darn good.  Then, on Sunday, the weather was horrid.  The wind blew and by the time we were to show, it was raining.  Oh, yippee...   They moved us into the small covered arena, and that was o.k., the class size had dwindled down.  A bunch of people decided to bail out early.  In the green the GJA got a couple of 2nds and then in the Novice Am, we got a 2nd and 3rd.
It was a good practice run, since we will be there again weekend after next.  For now, I am glad to be home!

Sounds like a successful show and a nice collection of ribbons to your credit. Good for you.

I was wondering if the smaller arena affected the forward in your horse. Course I'm not sure how much smaller is but I always things about hunters in terms of room to move properly. Guess that's my years of show management stuff and too small arenas for back up speaking, but just wondered.
