Thank you to Courtney Huguley for Whiskey
Given the high-level suit riders in the class, fourth was a respectable ribbon to start with.
In the second class, we displayed a wee bit more, um, exuberance than was called for. For example, at the end of the equitation pattern we chose to canter back to the line-up rather than trot. That was not our only error.
During the break between classes, horse and rider brains got stuffed back into their respective boxes.
Third class was too quiet but at least not alarming. Best we were going to get at that point.
Whiskey looks to be my ride for a while. I need to learn how to get the flair without the flameout.
Thank you for reading,
