WIHA State Finals: Hunter Hack W/ Race [06:56]
Well, state finals came up pretty fast. I can't believe the season has ended already. I'm a little upset because I wish I could continue to show through this association, but sadly, this was my last year. (CURSE ME FOR BEING A SENIOR!) I'm definately going to miss it. Anyway, I'm really proud of Race. He did so well at the show (despite how much he was fighting the bit), and we even PLACED. We took 8th in hunter hack, but I honestly believe we should have placed a little higher. Both a girl on my team and I were place rather low, and a number of riders whose horses had refused to jump placed above us (while our horses did not refuse). When our coach asked the judge why he gave us such placings, he merely said a horse can refuse up to two times without affecting the rider's score. To me, that is bogus. I can understand if my position over the jumps affected my placing, but I'm well aware it was horrible (I'm still beating myself up over it 'cus I know I can a lot better). But when the judge did not say anything about my position and said my transitioning between the jumps was awfull, it upset me. Why can refusing a jump not affect your score but tripping can? Idk. The hunter hack class was not the only class with strange placings. There were a number of other classes where the judge made some wild decisions. Anyway, I'm at least happy with Racer. He performed so well for me, especially in the rail work. I have decided that I am going to give Race about a month off from ...

Reno: WIHA Barrel Run 9-26-10 [00:26]
This is just one of the runs I made on Reno at the show I was just at. The first barrel is my main problem, due to the fact that Reno runs not only harder but turns a bit wider at actual shows, especially in large areas or outdoors. (He runs better indoors) I will get it eventually. I might be making another run on him on this weekend. Guess it'll depend on how busy my schedule is. PS I honestly don't need advice from anyone on here. I'm in the right hands.

Race's First Hunter Hack Class (Read Description) [02:18]
Well, here are the clips of the hunter hack classes I was in back in September. The show was originally a three day show, but the people in charge decided to cram it all in one weekend. Thus, the first day had double judging, and the second day ran like a normal show. And as you can see, our first time in the hunter hack class didn't go so well. I merely added the clip to show how Race acts when he doesn't want to be alone in the show ring and begins to panic. Our second time went rather well. We didn't place of course, but I didn't expect to. Despite the fact that i was a local show where jumping isn't as popular as other places, there were a number of good jumpers in that class. They definately had far more experience in jumping than I did. lol I'm aware my equitation is horrible, so I don't believe there is a need to tell me that. My horse is green to jumping. He was started on them at the begining of the summer with abosolutely no lessons at all, so you cannot expect him as well as me to be great. We are learning, and enjoying ourselves, so please leave your rude opinions to yourself. (if you have any) On a random note, (I'm sure you've noticed) my saddle slid back a lot in these classes. Race has high withers, and I can't seem to find any sort of pad that will keep it from sliding. I think my best option is to by a breast collar. Also, Race has been ignoring my bit again. (which is reason why he held his head rather high through the classes). I put him back in the ...
