SNEC showing show 2010

On sunday we decided at short notice to take part in this show. The main reason was so that Megan ( our chief helper at Friesians Scotland ) could take a horse along. The chosen horse was Othello who is a lovely little boy (currently advertised on the for sale page), he is 6 years old and has already been shown with his previous owner and is a calm and easy going horse, so is perfect for a novice to the showing world. Because we arranged this at such short notice Megan had only managed to ride Othello twice prior to taking him to the event so did not know him very well but they got on well together and were placed 5th. As this was Megans first attempt at showing and on a horse who she doesnt really know I thought this was a good result and so I was proud of her and Othello both. Well done Megan!

Oscar and I are quite used to getting out and about to shows and so it is expected that we should manage to perform but this was most definitely not the case on this occasion. I was in a bad mood, Oscar was also in a bad mood and in our case two wrongs do not make a right! I have recently been teaching Oscar to rear under saddle and he thought it was a better idea to perfect this rather than stand still in the line up so I decided to take him out of the ring and did not finish the class with him. I think perhaps this was Oscars way of letting me know not to ride him when in a bad mood otherwise he will make a display fit for the circus rather than one fit for the showing ring, my lesson has been learned!

Picture and video are both of Megan and Othello.
