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! 🙂


And on that note, we’re done (for now). See you next time! 🙂

Happy May Day, everyone! 🙂
