My first show ever, at the Sugarland Horse Park in Woodland, was an absolutely phenomenal! I had a great experience and successfully showcased all my skills, everything I have been working on this past year, and my love of riding, which was exactly what Laura and I desired that I should do. Although I was the only person riding in the walk/jog class, and there were no other youth in my classes, it was still an amazing experience, and Laura thinks that I rode well.
Saturday: Western Pleasure Walk/Jog
|I was so tense and concentrated so hard that I forgot to smile until near the end.|
|My first blue!|
|A picture of the cutting!|
|There was an eerie, spooky, dilapidated old building on the property; it looks like it has been there well over 100 years. Just in time for Halloween! I love spoo|
Sunday: Trail Walk/JogMy trail class was later in the day than my pleasure class had been; it was in early afternoon. In the morning, I watched the English classes, which consisted of pleasure and hunter hack. Hunter hack is a class I would like to try in the future, and I plan on preparing to do it this coming spring.

Laura was proud of how well I and done, too. She said that I showcased the skills I have been working this past year perfectly, and that my love of riding really showed while I rode in the ring. Even people I didm;t know really well congratulated me on well I had ridden; mule people are always kind and supportive, which is what Laura says makes the mule shows great. I couldn't have been happier with how the weekend had gone, and I can't wait until my next one!
