Well today I worked in the schooling show around preparing a presentation for my class tomorrow and Ron baling some more hay. Had to make him breakfast before I left as I knew he would work all day and not eat anything significant until we got home. However, I guess it's my turn to be disappointed. Our scores were 65 and 61 for Intro A and B, respectively. I felt it was our best ride for Intro B ever. Evidently the judge did not share their enthusiasm. It was our worst Intro B score ever.
It was a beautiful day and the facilities were nice. Mel went to help me as she knew I was already exhausted. She is a great help to me. It was nice to see the old neighborhood again. The facilities and the folks there were all real nice. However, Cathy the arena was dark and scary though, even Lil did not want to approach the judges stand at C. Despite all that was against us, we had two good rides. I got to try out my new looped reins which I think will help me alot. I might need spurs though.
Cathy, I'm glad the girls did well and enjoyed their rides.
Carol, I’m glad to hear you had a great ride. How nice is it to see evidence of all our hard work with a good ride??
We got to see Larry and Patty and Rita and Sandy and meet some new folks. The new folks had no idea of what was going on or how things work at a dressage show. I tried to explain as much as I could but it's so good to see some newbies getting involved... :) How can I remain disappointed for long?
I hope all have a good week. I'd upload some pics but Mel said the arena was too dark for pics.
Plus my system at home is too slow for uploading pics in a timely manner.
Learning to take it all in stride, Marsha
