Bell Cheval’s I’m Joanie
[Show Report, First Dance]

If you look at technical merit, I’m not riding all that much better than I am in the photo from the horrid ProAm show last year [Show Photo: ProAm 2017]. My toe is out. My knee is off the saddle. While my hands may be up, my elbows are flapping in the breeze. I’m probably leaning forward, I always am. My upper chest is caved in. A poster child for equitation I am not.

In terms of artistic impression, this show was the total opposite of ProAm. I’m doing two things right. I’m looking up. And I’m grinning like a fool. I was having a blast. Joanie and I tore up the ring in high style.

The lesson here is that attitude can cover a multitude of sins.

Thank you for reading,
Katherine Walcott
