Highboy and I are officially ready to get packing for his very first recognized horse trial! We will be headed to Laramie for the Windy Wyoming Horse Trials this weekend. I have set my goals for the weekend:
1 - to remain in the dressage court for the duration of our test (not jumping out despite those little white fences that should be jumps)
2 - stay mounted throughout all phases of competition (no falling off)
I've waited three years to be able to show Highboy at a recognized event. First he needed rehab, then he grew 4" taller and I had to wait for his muscles to catch up with his bones, then I had to wait for his brain to mature, then I had to figure out how he jumps best. We are finally at a place where we can give this a try!
