Last week was so fun to watch the live streaming of the Pre-Green Incentive Championships then the Derby Finals! Trainer M finished top 12 in the Pre-Green Championships! It was a fantastic ride but the green bean did one animated change that I think she got penalized for. Her other mount didn't make finals but still finished top 60. Out of 150+ horses competing, still not shabby.
The Derby never fails to disappoint even this jumper rider. I enjoy watching the handy rounds especially. Liza and Brunello had a well deserved win. I heard some people saying on social media that Jennifer and Jersey Boy were better. I thought Liza found the distances better and was a bit smoother. What did you think?
The ponies were good this weekend. We took it easy due to the heat. This week is forecasted to be hot too. After that its time to get Ms. Poppy back in shape. Sept 18th is our next show.
I am trying one last ditch effort of having a trainer come to my house today and ride Luxxx. If it doesn't work out then I will take him to K's barn for trainer N to ride. I live about 45 minutes from trainer N and they have a huge show barn so it's just not feasible for her to come to me. So fingers crossed the new lady works out. Don't get me wrong, sending him to N is not a bad thing but I would miss out on getting to watch. That's really important to me with Baby L.
