This last Saturday the 7th was my first horse show of the season at Mandt’s Equestrian Center. The show was in honor of a young girl, Kara who died 2 years ago of a drug overdose. Kara loved to show horses and her horse Hip Hop was shown by one of her good friends, so it was a great show to attend in remembrance of her.

For the second time, I showed my horse Dolly in showmanship. She was a good girl, she nailed everything until we got to the set up and she drifted away into “la la land” pretending she had never set up before. We ended up getting fourth out of about 12, not bad for the second time! She decided she wanted to be a little sassy because the weather was pretty chilly. After she worked out her sass I showed her in two walk-trot classes. We got a 2nd and 5th out of about 20 horses. Then my trainer, Alison showed her in a few pleasure classes. We weren’t going for the win, just schooling so it was a great opportunity to get some schooling in before the big shows start this summer.

Dolly and I may be showing this coming weekend at a Hunter- Jumper schooling show in flat classes so more updates will be coming soon. We plan on doing out first big show at the end of the month, May 25th- 30th in Minnesota.

Stay tuned!
