Western Riding 5.5.2013

Grace and I went to a show on Sunday. I was lucky enough to have someone film my patterns with my cell phone. Instead of picking apart everything that needs improvement in this ride I am going to take a moment to stand back and appreciate it. The mare waited on me, listened to me, did not throw in any of her extra credit lead changes and was almost a tad slow! We are so much more relaxed than we were a year ago. 

I only did 4 classes at the show, the footing was recently replaced and it was a bit deep for my liking. It made for a nice day as I left the house at 7:30am and was home at 4:00pm, the show grounds is 40 minutes from my house. I cold hosed and poulticed all 4 legs when we got home, I will have a better idea tonight if Grace is sore from the footing. Hopefully it settles more before the next show.
