Recent and Coming Horse Shows

So for this blog post, I thought I would talk about the shows I have recently done, and the shows that are coming up! 🙂

I didn’t show for about a month because no shows were going on then, but the weekend before the one that just passed, I went to the Pin Oak Charity Horse Show. This is the biggest Texas horse show of the year, and it’s HUGE! There are probably at least 55 people you compete against per class. I couldn’t even count how many were participating at the show in total. All I know was that it was an insanely huge number. Anyways, the show went very well!

On the first day I didn’t place, but on the second day, I did get a 6th in my EQ over fences and a 3rd in the EQ flat. Thats really good considering it was Pin Oak and that I was competing against 65 people in the jumping, and over 30 in the flat. I am really proud of how Bella did!

I have one upcoming show this month, and it’s in Tyler! Iv’e never been to this show before, so I am really excited to see what the show grounds look like and all that. I hope it goes well and that Bella enjoys the facility as well! 

Down below I thought I would share a photo of Bella and I jumping at Pin Oak! Enjoy!

Summer

I am so very excited for summer, and even more excited because it’s so close! I have so many plans for the summer that are sure to be awesome.

I have a few horse shows this summer that are really fun. I have one in Estes Park Colorado and the other in Santa Fe New Mexico. The Eestes Park one was a blast last year and I am so excited to go again! We are also going to a Santa Fe show this year which is brand new! I am so excited to go and see what it’s like. 🙂

This summer I am also going on my Canada trip. The trip is in June and it’s just so close! I can’t help but be so anxious and excited. I can’t wait to see what this amazing adventure will bring, and I hope June arrives fast!

Champion and Classic Win!

This weekend was a very very very good show weekend for Bella and I!

I went to the show with many goals, and I achieved all of them! The show lasts Friday-Sunday. On Friday I didn’t show, but I warmed up and practiced some jumps with Bella. We had an amazing practice and I was really excited. Saturday was an OK show day… It wasn’t really the best I could do though. We did win a 3rd in one of our rounds out of 19 people though so that was good! Now Sunday was really our day for Bella and I to shine. Every round was perfect and we won a $500 classic! I won all the rounds I went into except for one round, but I still got 2nd place in that one! 

The classic win was so exciting! Bella and I got a pretty blue ribbon, and we won this felt blanket thing that said “Winter Series Classic Winner” on it! 

Then, on top of that, Bella and I won our first champion ribbon together! I was so excited and I know Bella was too. She worked very hard this weekend and I am so proud of her. Of course we got a big champion ribbon and we also got a blanket to drape over Bella in the winter. It said “Winter Series Champion” on it. It was so exciting!

It was one of the best weekends Bella and I have had together and I am so proud of her! Can’t wait to show at Pin Oak in a month or so!

Derby Goals!

Tons of shows have been going on lately, and It’s so exciting to have shows almost every weekend!

The next show I am doing, I hope to participate in a 3ft derby. Derby’s are a special kind of class you can enter in. They have high and low option jumps, and the courses are really hard and technical. They are so fun, and the judges give you scores in each of your rounds. After everyone has finished, they add together everyones 2 scores. Whoever has the highest total wins! You can even win lots of money in the derbies.

I really hope I get to compete in a derby soon, they are really exciting and fun!

New Show Season, 2015!

I am so excited that the new show year has finally started! That means at least 2 shows a month, if not more!

I have already been to 1 show this 2015. I had one last weekend, and I have one this weekend. I leave tomorrow (Friday) and the show is until Sunday. The last  show was in Waco, and the show this coming weekend is in Waco as well,  but I have a few shows in Katy this February.

I am especially looking forward to the Katy show this February. The show actually starts the day after my birthday (it starts on Friday and my birthday is on a Thursday), but my mom is going to take me to the show early on Thursday so that I get to spend my birthday at the show with my horse! I am really excited.

Since I will be at the show on my birthday now, I plan to have a fun bareback ride in the sunset in the huge field that they have at the show. It sounds really relaxing and fun, and I have always wanted to get silhouette photos with my horse! If I get any good ones I will be sure to share them on here.

That’s about it for now. I will be sure to update on how the show this weekend goes, and wish me luck! 🙂

Latest Show News

I just got back from my second weekend of showing in Houston. It was awesome and Bella was great. The highlight of the weekend was winning second place in a huge EQ flat class out of 30 people or so and some really good riders, and winning first place in another flat class out of 25 people or so. The jumping was also really fun and I learned many new things. I got to go with my Dad, and we had a lot of fun spending time together! It was a great weekend, and I can’t wait to go to Dallas for another show in 4 weeks. 😀
