Here is a video of Summer’s first show. courtesy of Mary’s blog
We chose a local schooling show for Summer’s first outing. The venue and weather were perfect. Callie competed first and Summer was upset to be left alone in the trailer but that is all part of the learning process and she finally settled down. Callie tried hard but Mary felt that she didn’t like the deep footing in the indoor arena but still managed to pick up a 2nd and 3rd place ribbons. The show had suddenly been moved inside when a local farmer started making hay next to the outdoor arena. Now Summer wouldn’t have been too upset with a tractor but had only been ridden in an indoor once before but being the super star that she is, managed to hold it all together. As Mary finished her first test I could hear Dona Ruth, the judge say ‘what a lovely young horse’. The second test was even better and Summer scored a 74.8%. She won both classes and left Mary and myself with silly grins on our faces!
Thank you Mary for all your hard work. This would not be possible without you.
Did I mention that Summer is only three!
