Dressage Show on Thuy - Sidesaddle
Well, quite a nice show day. Both of my horses were in the ribbons for every

One of our more forward moments.
I know the judge said we needed more bend, but I was very pleased with how Thuy did.
We got a Third and Fourth. I was surprised we did that well after watching the other riders.
We got an 8 on one of our canter circles. Going in, one of my goals was just to get the correct leads...
The evening before, at dinner, my fortune cookie said that 'You love the showmanship and display'. I tried to remember that while I was showing.
