Reserve Champion!

Mazzy competed over fences for the first time yesterday. She was such a good girl!!! When she arrived at the show she was calm as can be. I rode her around a little while my trainer was schooling some of the other horses. The warm up ring was crazy with people jumping all over the place, and horses coming at us from every direction. It didn't seem to phase her. She really has a great mind. My trainer then got on Mazzy to school her over a few jumps and at first she was preoccupied with all that was going on, but after a few jumps she settled in, and focused. She did an unjudged warm up round before her division, and jumped around great. Her next two rounds were also really good. I am so happy she jumped around, got all her lead changes, and performed very respectfully. For her first show I couldn't be happier, considering how green she is. I rode her in the hack and she was pretty tired by then and I broke, oops not enough leg when going past the gate. It was a big day for her. She ended up Reserve Champion! Yeah, Mazzy!

The video I shot with my little point and shoot camera came out terrible (see blurry screen shot above), so I ordered her rounds from the videographer. I also ordered a few shots from the photographer, after all it was her jumping debut!
