The weather forecast for Saturday looks quite lovely. They're calling for bright sunshine and a high of 57 degrees, with a zero percent chance of rain. That means we'll be going to our first show of 2012!
It's a fun show, so I won't really be "showing", but we're heading up to get in some riding time away from the barn. I'm really looking forward to it and might even dabble in a few non-traditional classes. :)
I'm thinking about doing a trail class, but I want to see what the pattern is going to be before I commit to that. I also might find myself signing up for cloverleaf barrels! That's right, Lilly and I might "run" barrels on Saturday! Ok, we're really just going to use the class to practice our figure eights, lead changes, and get her in the arena all by herself, but I might see if she can "get it" on the way home!
Other than that, we're going to enter four western classes. The first two are walk/jog only, but the following two are GAYP (go as you please), and while everyone else will be jogging, I'm thinking about loping in at least one of them. I want to see how she'll do with her leads and the only way to do that is to lope!
With any luck my friend will be tagging along and I'll bribe her into taking pictures for me. We won't be dressed up in fancy show clothes, but hopefully we'll look really good out there!
In other news, I got my loping video edited and decided to go ahead and post it. It's a bit long, and quiet, but hopefully you enjoy it. :)
