Dressage on Sunday

Posted on 11 May 2014 | 5 Comments

After we made banana pikelets for Mum for Mother's Day, we went to Papatoetoe Pony Club for a dressage day. Leo and I did three tests, and he went perfectly for me. We were lucky to be placed second in two classes. It was only the second time I had tried dressage. (The other time was a year ago on Mindy.) The comments on the judges' sheets were very useful and will help me improve for next time. Two of the judges wrote that Leo and I are a "lovely combination". We got a score of 9 for our medium walk and when Leo started neighing at his friends during a movement the judge wrote: "Very well done - especially since pony was a bit distracted". I can't wait for the next dressage day. It was so much fun.

    Great day Katie. I agree with the judges....great combination! And Dusty was perfect standing at the truck....happy as can be. It was worth the wait to see your marks and the judges' comments. Well done

    Good job Katie especially since it was your second time trying dressage!

    Also, you washed Leo really well. That new PRO-COAT shampoo by Nellie Tier is amazing. Look how white his mane is!

    You rode really well today, Katie. And Leo was such lovely boy, too. A great combination for sure.
