Ok I have to brag...
I am so proud of my boys!!! We had a great time today at the NJ Horse Park. Now there were some "eventful" moments as 2 different EMT/Ambulance trips, and a motorcyclist was hit at the end of the driveway and a medi vac helicopter had to land up the hill on the xc course.
Through all of it the boys stayed calm and improved every round.
Lad managed to win a TIP Jumper class. And Petey managed to hold onto a solid placing in the 3rd class with a quick jump off to sit a mere 3 secs behind Lad. I also catch rode for one of my friends when she had to go to the ER. (FYI, testing gravity at shows is really a bad idea!!!! )
So all in all I rode 8 rounds and feel like we're more ready for the VA Tb Celebration in 2 weeks. Lad put to rest all doubts I have had about his readiness to return to the 3'7" division. He was clearing everything with room to spare and as is par for the course, lit up in front of the crowds and seemed to find an extra ooomph when he has a decorated course and devoted fans. (How he seems to look at it)
Pics are here (The bay with the blaze is my friends mare):
