Sunday’s show went really well, in spite of the sky intermittently spitting on us (April showers have arrived in full force this week). Couelita and I did very well: we didn’t place, but we jumped clear both rounds, which is a first for us (until now the best was one out of two). My friend Ilona rode her for a third round and they jumped clear as well, which is even more impressive considering Ilona had only jumped her twice before. So I can safely say that the last year of hard work is definitely paying off. 🙂

It was also a good day for pictures. I didn’t take quite as many as usual, but the vast majority turned out well (usually I have a ton of blurry ones, but I think I’ve – finally –  managed to figure out how to focus properly). Here’s a sample:

We have another show coming up next month, and hopefully I’ll have some other stuff to take pictures of in the meantime (weather permitting, of course).

As promised, here are some of my favorite pictures from last week’s show (which went really well, by the way; a couple of minor oopses but overall I’m very pleased with how we did). Enjoy! 🙂

Last month I participated in my first jumping competition of the year and overall it went pretty well. This was my second official jumping show with Couelita, my new project horse (Blue sadly had to be re-homed due to an injury last year), and while we didn’t place in either of our classes, we didn’t have any major mistakes, so I’m calling it a win. 🙂

The lighting wasn’t great, so I didn’t get very many good shots, but a few turned out nice:

And since spring has finally sprung, I took some pictures of our flowers earlier (also, it was an excuse to be able to make that horribly lame pun in the title):

We had one of our unofficial jumping shows in January and, as always, we all had fun and when I wasn’t riding, I was taking pictures of everybody. A small sampling for your viewing pleasure:

As you can tell from the title, these are a couple of months old, but I hope you enjoy anyway:
