First show!

On Saturday Bucky, Haley, Ali & I headed off to our first show! We found the ideal opportunity to introduce them to showing at the SYALER Dressage Schooling Show at Langwood Farm. So we brushed, braided, and borrowed gear!

We had a beautiful day and the show was small, so the horses quickly settled in and were very well behaved!

Bucky trotting in the indoor, he was good and even got the high point horse award for the day.

The judge was also very nice and gave many helpful comments and things for us to work on.

Haley has only been really going under saddle for a few months and has been being ridden (and loved!) by my best friend Ali. Haley has had some biting issues and had only been ridden in a bitted bridle for a week prior to the show.

She was also a star though and did very well for Ali.

What a pretty mare, Ali has done a fantastic job with her. We are looking forward to more adventures with the buckskins this summer!
