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.
