Long time lurker, first time poster.
I went to a schooling show today, my second live (as opposed to virtual) show with this horse in the 4 years I’ve had him. When I bought him he was round pen, w/t green. Today, I showed at 3rd level, first time ever in my riding career!!
We scored a 61.7 at Third 1 and a 63.5 at Third 3!!! I am beyond proud of both him and myself and ever so thankful to my fabulous trainer who has stuck with me for these many, many years through a number of difficult and less than suitable horses.
BTW, my pony is an Andalusian, 11 years old, black gelding.
I just had to brag
