Sunday is our first show of the season and our first WP show. It's just a schooling show but I'm nervous. I think because it's my first western show and I still so uncomfortable in the clothes/hat. It's also my first show with Grace and while she's doing really well she's not the kind of horse you can just throw away and let her do her job. I don't want to have to do too much correcting in front of a judge but I'm hoping if we warm up really well, we'll be ok. And it's just a schooling show for fun, right? Of course this year they changed the schedule so western is first. Last year English was first back when I was showing English. I swear they just do it to make me more nervous! I'm also nervous for my niece. It will be her first show ever!! She's going to ride in the 14-17 walk/jog classes.
I want to stay and do the English classes just because it's my comfort zone. I don't have a bridle that matches my new CC saddle though. And we haven't practiced at all. And Grace isn't really big enough to be an HUS horse. Man, if only she was like a hand taller her life would be so much easier. She wants to be an english horse. But there isn't usually a ton of competition at this show and she's probably nice enough we should place. I don't know why but I'm being weird about doing it. For some reason I don't want to tell the trainer I want to do the english classes. See, weird.
The leather guy called about my chaps yesterday. He's got the leather picked out and he's going down to town to pick it up on Saturday. I went and dropped off a deposit yesterday. Should only be about two weeks now. How cool is that?
So, I need to go pick up a show blanket on Saturday and my new trailer. I also need to make sure the kiddo has a belt and acceptable jeans. So much to do and so little time! I'm also supposed to squeeze in some lessons on Tax. Sigh...
Hopefully my next post will be all about how we did!!!
