    Default Couldn't be prouder of her! First show jumping outing :) *pics & vid*

    Today Kihi and I did our first show together, Kihi probably jumped her first round of show jumps ever and I competed for the first time since 2008 We just did the 60cm clear round and 65cm class as it was her first one.

    First round was very, very sticky. The fillers were causing her to back off a lot but some pony club kicks and unattractive riding we went clear. Had to turn a circle unfortunately as the girth wasn't tight enough and she's very round so we had some saddle slipping issues that I had to correct so 4 faults.

    Second class was brilliant She knew what she had to do and the fillers weren't scary anymore, I think she had fun One pole down so we came 7th but really not bothered about rosettes, she was so good in a strange environment, she's not jumped a lot and she was so honest. Honestly chuffed to bits!

    Pictureess

    About to hack over

    First class

    Happy Kat
