Next I did the 1.10 High Adult Amateur Jumper class. We jumped an in and out and it should have been a nice bending 6 strides to the next jump and at stride 6 I pulled and we fit a really really ugly 7 in. As in I practically slammed her in the jump and she had to flail to get over it. One rail down. So then the 4 strides to the next jump was not going to happen so I had to pull for an ugly 5 and the super mare left it up. Finished the course nicely after I got that out of my system. I came out of the ring and N pointed out that Poppy should have dumped me for those shenanigans. Yup. Grey mare made up for course #1. Lots of pats and carrots later and all was forgiven. Sunday is a new day. Hopefully we knocked the rust off and we can redeem ourselves in the classic today.

Horse Show Report Day 1
Sleep is for the weak. I rested for about 3 hours then hauled out about 6 am Saturday for the show. I got there in plenty of time to unload, park the trailer, bathe Poppy, and watch my friends go. My trainer N and I decided I should start Poppy in the 1m since we had not shown since September.
