First Day of Showing

i Mei Dorrance is doing great on her first trip to the “big show.” The Ranch Riding pattern was unusual and difficult, and our girl turned the wrong way at one point, but she got back on track and finished strongly. In Trail she had a solid run with one small lead issue. There is so much to be learned about showing at this level.

Dawn Poston and Fred are off to a marvelous beginning. I believe they were 16 th out of nearly 50 in Ranch Riding, then a Fabulous 14 out of 65 in Trail. Fred always delivers!

I started my day as 9th out of 47 in Trail, then 11th out of 43 in Ranch Riding, where a foolish bobble kept me out of the Top Ten. I was also happy with my reining run, but didn’t score as well as I’d hoped. All in all, a good day. Cutting tomorrow!
