Last weekend was a show at Mullet Hall, here in Charleston. My lowest score was a 70.8%, so I’m heading in the right direction. My high score was a 73.3%. I did the Team test twice and the Individual test twice, and I had two different judges. Our next show is in Tryon in June, on Father’s Day weekend. I haven’t confirmed this yet with Michelle but I’m also planning on a show at Stable View in the middle of July. They’ve scheduled two shows back to back, so it’s a very efficient way to plan.
At Mullet Hall Jolie was psychotic on Friday! She was so bad that Michelle didn’t even want me to go into the stall with her. I had visions of waking up Saturday morning and having it be a catastrophe, but Saturday morning she had decided that the dragons weren’t going to eat her and she was fine. When I rode her, she was Miss Perfect. I think that once she is acclimated to a new place, she’s fine on the next visit, so we’ll have to give her time to settle in at our next show. Once she settled down she was really a perfect princess.
I’ve only been riding her regularly since last September, and I’m really pleased with the progress we’ve made.
