Ok, so I'm too excited not to brag...

The dressage schooling show that I went to on Sunday posted the scores today. I got high score of the day!!! Unbelievable! Little ol' me on a mare that I've trained, at her first dressage show, and, get this, MY first dressage show! Ok, so there wasn't a huge turn out of people. But still... I am just blown away, and super proud.

So none of this has anything to do with Bear, and yet has everything to do with Bear. I have so much more confidence and motivation to start getting him out to some shows once I'm back from the summer.

Plus its a huge personal victory.

I'll go back to being humble now...

OMG CONGRATS!!! That's super exciting and really rewarding to know. I always take a show as a test of whether or not I'm just fooling myself every day that I'm a decent rider. When I get to a show and place/place well, I know it's not just a fluke, it's because I know what I'm doing. Now you'll have that added confidence for when you're training Bear. Awesome!

By the way, I was reading about your lesson (I still can't find a trainer to come do lessons, so I live vicariously through others)and I can't wait to heal up my stupid ankle so I can try those exercises. Please keep sharing so I can have a whole catalog of ideas to try?
