It has been many years since I have chosen to compete in a horse show. So tomorrow I am entered in the Western Dressage classes at a local show. Can I say I am nervous? Yes I am. It has been a long time. I have been almost ready to cancel through the week but then I would loose my entry fees and the experience. I decided to take Riva as she is more used to going places than Arwen and I can relax a bit more with her. Arwen needs to spend more time online getting ready to ride and I am not sure how much opportunity there will be there for that so I decided to take Riva. We are just doing the Intro test which is walk trot. This is not really about the competition it is simply about doing it, getting organized and going out of my comfort zone.
Today I got the trailer ready, cleaned the tack and tried to mentally prepare to go. I drove over to the venue to make sure I knew where I was going. So I think we are ready to go. Wish me luck. :)
