3rd Ever Horse Show
 By Cryztaltrees   •   30th Aug 2010   •   2,024 views   •   7 comments
Wow, this weekend was awesome. You will see why when you read the rest of my article.

I had to get up at 6.00 AM Sunday morning to start getting ready for my 3rd ever horse show. At 7.00 AM I started to plait my pony for the first time, and though I thought it looked not really up to standard, my Mum, Dad and Aunty who came to help later on, thought it was pretty good for a first timer.

At 9.00 AM, when we had finished grooming and tacking up, I got up on my pony, Maddy, and rode down to the racecourse, which was about 15 minutes worth of walking/trotting. On the way, we met up with my friend Alice and her pony Koon, chatting as we went. When we got there, I rode over to where Aunty Von was waiting, dismounted and set off to pay for my classes. $32 for 7 classes + ground levy.

I think I did really well in my classes, even though there were only about 8 riders in our ring.

Best Presented - 2nd
Novice Pony - 1st
Open Pony - 3rd
Mannered and Paced - No placing.
Best suitable for Pony Club - 4th
Best Trotting - No placing.
Best Rider - 3rd

AND since I placed 1st in Novice pony, I had to compete for Champion and Reserve Champion. I came out with Reserve Champion! Yay! It also turns out I may be recieving a free horse rug as a prize at the prizegiving soon too, man, am I lucky!

So it was a really cool weekend and there is another show coming up soon. I am already looking forward to it!
