I took my little horse to a show on Sunday D:

 I can't say we had a purpose whilst over there, I just wanted to take him to something local as we've been doing lots of new things..like his first actual course of jumpings in well over a decade and going to a show.

There was A LOT of shouting, he made a considerable amount of people laugh and made me very embarrassed as he would not shut up I rode over with 2 friends and her mum bought their trailer over so we could tie up. My friend's did the 2ft6 and 2ft9 courses.Parsley and myself did the warm-up arena ahaha.

It was great to get him out doing something, but frankly my jumping still is just not good enough and I don't feel comfortable doing anything yet. Maybe next year if he's still in work! I do want to do a class or at least Clear Round, but I am not prepared to do it knowing it's just not quite good enough yet..such a shame as it was lol. 

We had a couple of issues of trying to run off with me out of excitement and bouncing but it's all good ;) 

Just thought I'd share as it was only August last year he could be turned out for the first time in 9 months!

He's come a long way and you've worked hard to achieve it, I think you deserve a virtual rosette!

 Thank you!  He's finally at where I want him weight wise and we're currently working on his fitness. He can go for hours out in the countryside with his friends, but school wise, he finds 25-30 mins a little difficult, so we're trying to fix this!

I can't believe our faces in those photos -.- and how unflattering my white jods are.

 well done char!! thats great - pip did exactly the same thing this weekend - squealing, whinnying and jumping into the air at any given moment!!  well done for getting out and about - you'll be fine to do a clear round next time im sure - he might be better because it'll give him something to focus on!!
