Bingo was my dance partner at this show. As I’ve said before [Training Aids], I am relaxed on Bingo and am less likely to get drawn into his drama. Not that he has much drama in the first place, hence the relaxed. It was a local show, so polo shirt instead of vest. My main competition was the same – myself.

I dialed Bingo up a bit more without losing the focus on my riding. However, I blew the right lead. This on a horse who is so easy that kids learn to canter on him. What’s up with that?
Had glimmerings of the type of riding required for competitive equitation. Also glimmerings that these nuances may not be in my skill set. Nuance is not a word people use to near me. More on this anon.
