I don't show Kylie too much anymore, just a few times a year, but decided to at the last minute this weekend. I woke up super early to go pick her up and get her to the show and into the ring before the show started. Luckily she got right in the trailer, since I was the only one there to load her, and it was pitch black out. We got to the show and she was so relaxed and happy. She warmed up perfectly. My first equitation class was pretty good, she was forward and relaxed, all my distances were good, but I added a little leg in the line (just to make sure) when I should have just sat still and she swapped leads coming out over the oxer. I was happy with that round. In second round, she was great, but I had one fence I would rather forget. Stupid mistake, again if I had just sat still and stayed out of her way, Kylie would have made a better decision than me. I won the flat eq, and ended up reserve champion of the equitation division. The last class was a medal class. I laid down an awesome round, nailed ever jump and felt great. I was called back on top for the work off and not sure what the judge didn't like about my work off, but moved down to third. My trainer said I should have won (and the girl who moved up from 4th to 1st was also her student). Who knows? It didn't really matter to me because thankfully, I wasn't trying to qualify and I didn't need the points, but I'm sure I would have felt differently if I was trying to qualify and needed to win to get the points. I was just super happy at how good Kylie was after not showing for so long. Fun day!
