Well, success is relative... Little Maggie was a very good girl. She doesn't look at much of anything, including the boats that were on the grounds. Little spook in the indoor arena. Low score of 49.6, high of 58.4, both on the same day, the last day of the show, go figure.
So, what have we learned? Balance needs to be better, on the part of the rider. Looks like we have to buckle down and get more of the weight off. Not like I didn't know that, but I need to go hard. Luckily I have a great trainer who is going to whup my butt straight into next show season. And lots of support from the ladies at the barn and other friends.
So, now we take a break from showing to await the arrival of my little Folly, due in two weeks. We move Mama on the weekend to where she's going to foal out. We're going to go on a road trip with my trainer and show buddy to look at baby when s/he's on the ground, see what we've got. I'd like to see baby go through FEI 4year old tests if ready when the time comes. So I'd better be in tip top shape for that! I'm glad to have my big girl to teach me what I need to know. This dressage thing is more complicated than it looks!
