Our first show!

Today was our very first dressage show together! Max has been improving by the mile-full with his willingness and response to the aids. On Saturday we had the BEST lesson ever and I had full confidence he would do very well in the show.

The day started out great. My very wonderful hubby came along and helped me get Max ready. And take pictures and videos of course ^.^

The craziness that is getting ready..


Max was quite ..expressive during Intro C. By Intro B he had calmed down a bit. Here are pics and a video!



We scored 61.3 in Intro C - which is not bad considering! And a whopping 70% in Intro B! Woohoo! This is the first time I've seen a seven in my scores so I'm super excited about that. Max can really be a champ when he's not busy being a goose. The judge was super nice and told me we had some really great moments and some rather interesting ones too. She also told me she used to own a horse that looked just like Max, also name Max! Imagine that!

Moving forward we have a jumping lesson coming up next weekend, and then our very first hunter pace the weekend after that! Woohoo!
