Farrah was incredible at the Ocala Horse Properties Event. We had a few hiccups in dressage, where I pushed for a wow lengthening at the trot without the half-halt. We cantered 2 strides, so that became a 4...of course that shut off my brain and I started to walk at C, instead of the stretchy trot circle (Training A). Ah well, add an error. Farrah was 8th after dressage with a 38.
Stadium was awesome. Farrah was so rideable, the course flowed and we made time and left all the rails up :)
Cross country had some good questions for a first training. There was a half coffin, a log/bank drop, a second bank drop 2 strides from a table and lots of big gallop tables. Nice bending question. I figured we'd not even be close to optimum time and I didn't go for time, as we are so new to this level (first time out!). I was shocked, we were only 10 seconds off the time and ended up with a 4th! So one score down for a T3D (long format event).
I CAN'T wait for our next one, sometime in January. Woo Hoo Farrah!!!
