Just So You See We're Still Alive...

Man it's been a long time since I've posted on here! Comet did end up going to the show in Indiana back in March. While it could have been worse, it wasn't exactly what you would call normal. He attempted to lay down in the warm up ring once (only made it halfway until I got after him to get up), he had a flip out moment at the trailer and when his friend was 10ft away from him instead of next to him, and he took 1 1/2hrs to get back into the trailer. While he is definitely no professional, I was surprised that he did well in poles. We don't really have the proper facilities to train for poles (small indoor and only fields to ride in outside) so once he knew what he was doing, he did a lot better than what I expected. Even though I know he'll never be any show horse, he's still my boy and I was proud of him. He tried his best for the classes we entered and we're just in it for the fun of it, not the competition ;) Hope everyone has a great ride and enjoy this awesome weather while we have it!
