Dreamy and I had a great day at the Green Acres Horse Trial back in August. This is one of my favorite places to event. In 2012 when we first moved up to Beginner Novice, we had some bad luck on the cross country course at one of the GA events (refusal on the LAST DAMN FENCE! Ahhh! I left my mare down and forgot to ride the entire course!) and then the next event Dreamy pulled a three-day-old front shoe from slipping on the grassy stadium course. I was sort of leery about showing there this year, as I really like the event but worry about "bad luck". Haha.
I should not have been worried. After a season of fox hunting over monstrous natural fences and just really upping our game this year, this event was a great success. Plus, we had just returned from our week with Denny, so our confidence as a team was very high. We had one of our best dressage tests, even scoring a FREAKING NINE on our free walk (HELL YEAH!).
|Awesome test! And yes, spoiler alert: we placed second!|
