So my show season with the mare is pretty much nonexistent at this point. We went out to one show and she was a being green (which she is) so I just showed in hand. I tried to go to a dressage show over the summer and a trailer tire blew out on the highway which was damn scary…so I never made it to that show. I was supposed to go to a show a few weeks ago and it got rained out. I feel like I should just give up on showing this year.
My trainer on the other hand thinks I need to do SOMETHING show wise this year. There is a dressage show at the local show grounds in under two weeks. The local show grounds are literally 3/4 of a mile from TM’s barn. I wasn’t going to go. My trainer thought that was unacceptable.
It is so weird because my ribbon loving self should have thought that was unacceptable also except…well…I didn’t. I really wasn’t planning on going until she said something. I don’t know why I wasn’t going to go. I mean, TM and I are just going to do Intro A&B, it is not like I am going to do 3rd level at some big time show. It is just odd that I didn’t want to show.
After my trainer laying down the law with me I went to enter and you know what? I am glad I did. I think it will be fun. I really do need to get out about with TM before the winter comes. Doing a little dressage show right down the road is the perfect way to get out there and show without having it be a big deal.
