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).

Pony Games

Usually we have an end-of-the-year show at the barn, but this year we did something different: a games day, in which parents participated alongside their kids (and the older riders). Much fun ensued. 🙂DSC_1033csDSC_1117csDSC_1146csDSC_1181cs

Even Fred took a turn:DSC_1202csDSC_1221csDSC_1230csDSC_1233csDSC_1247csDSC_1296cbws

I think I can safely say it was a huge success and I hope we do this again sometime. 🙂
