LOL wow what a show! that sucks that things turned out like that. i can really relate to how you felt! im fairly new to all this showing stuff and when you aren't totally prepared things happen. i am so happy that my trainer/aunt usually goes with me to shows. she has done it so many times and has saved the day at my shows more than once. ok now to the bad show experience, the whole day started badly, my aunt truthfully didn't want to take me that day although she never said that but i could tell. anyways so we figured the show would be slow so we took our time and my aunt clipped pearls whiskers which she has never done and hates!! so that took like 30 mins or more. so we finally get to the show and find out the equitation classes are over and they are starting trail. So i signed up for a in hand class but pearl hasn't ever done that kind of class, i did it so she could see the obsticals first, but to only find out its such a small easy course and nothing is scary . so all the other horses were perfect and trotted right next to the handler and all that well pearl decides she doesn't want to listen to me at all or trot so to make short it was really enbarrising! so i get on pearl and i find out you have to countercanter a few strides in a very small space. Pearl can't do that yet! ( i know its really sad that she can't but she had a bad trainer when they broke her, i've spent the last few years undoing his/her training and teaching her ours) anyway so i practice in the warm up arena but of course a horse can't learn that in a few minutes. so we go out there and stink! she wouldn't pick up the countercanter she wouldn't even canter and i had spurs on and i used them but she was so bad that day. well we got first but only cuz we were the only ones in the 14-17 class!! i also entered in an open class also and pearl did a repeat of the last class and we got 5th out of 5 people. i was really sad that the whole show was a mess. i should have practiced and prepared for the show but instead i went with uncleaned tack and a naughty horse! My aunt wasn't that upset she knows how pearl is and that shows with pearl are bound to be entertaining! anyways that was my WORSE show ever. i learned alot from that show experince and since then pearl has learned to countercanter and i know now that i need to give lots of time before hand about the show, to the people who are taking me and for me to practice and clean and prepare everything. well heres a vote is should stop now LOL
