I had such a great time at this show, even though it was definitely the most emotionally and physically challenging one yet. Despite all of this, I learned so very much! It was also a relief to FINALLY say “goodbye” to the dreaded Training Level!
To sum up the weekend, we had some lameness issues again, but we figured out the problem, which was also most likely causing the lameness throughout the month. Poor girl!
We scratched our First Level ride on Friday…
We leaped out of the ring on Saturday…
And we got seventh for the championships on Sunday, with a test error.
After multiple big sighs from everyone involved, DJ and I got the chance to bond and deal with difficult, stressful situations, which will definitely help us in the long run.
