Hunter Princess

Warming up in the 2' class

Focused. My number flapping in the wind...




Our one refusal of the day. Mostly my fault though, I was getting tired!

Take two: awkwardly getting over it.

Flat class





So pretty!

For some reason I really like this picture :)

I may have to print this one out and frame it :)
Well, we may not actually be hunter princesses, but Jetta looks pretty darn good! I am still very proud of how she handled the show. I felt pretty comfortable with my position, though I know we still have a lot to work on - my leg is still slipping back a bit and I need to work on an automatic release instead of a long crest release. And of course stamina. I did get caught jumping ahead a few times, but for the most part I was happy with how it went - I didn't get jumped out of the tack or get caught behind the motion, I didn't catch Jetta in the mouth or have too many awkward moments. So it was a success!
