Getting It Down

Since I know you’ve all been waiting, here it is: the show was an absolute disaster. I don’t want to really discuss it in length because there’s just no way to properly describe how frustrating the whole thing was. Let’s put it this way, if I didn’t let Dandy go forward, he was going to rear. If I let him go forward, he was going to buck. So we scratched. I’ve got a plan with JLE for this summer but I’ll discuss that later.

Luckily, I did get to go XC schooling the next day, so the whole weekend wasn’t quite a disaster.  We had a great time and Dandy was high as a kite but willing to come back to me. Quite a difference from the day before.

  1. Oh, how frustrating. Horses! I’m sorry it didn’t go well, but at least you have a good trainer to work with!

  2. Dandy, bad pony! I’m sorry to hear that, but you are a great rider and you’ve got a great trainer so it will improve.

  3. Don’t take it to heart. Girl it comes with the territory of these OTTB’s. It will take more exposure. No way around it. Gotta get out there over and over and over and it will get better. Maybe little by little but it will get better.
