This is my pony Conspiracy Theory. This photo is from hi/lo pony in the two foot division, from friday february 15 2013. Please judge us both really harshly!!
My pony Shadow is absolutely incredible at home while schooling. I can’t wait to show her! The problem is, shes ultra spooky, jumpy, speedy, and doesn’t listen at all in the show ring. In the warm up ring she is very good, but when we get to the ring to show, she explodes! She starts jigging, won’t slow down,bucks, and basically acts like a stud. I’ve been showing her on the Trillium circuit for about a year. The highest we placed was a third in a class of five because of her antics. I don’t understand why she does this because I showed her in a lower level circuit and we won almost every class. We got six end of year champs, and now we can barely get a nineth! No, its not because the saddle isn’t fitting, I just bought a new one and it fits her perfectly.
How do I get her attention on me without being noticeable to the judge? How do I calm her down? HELP!
This photo was taken last week. I have recently moved to a new barn (Northequest) This was only the third week we have been at the barn. Shadow (my pony) has consistently been getting better and better each and every ride! I’m hoping we will be ready for show season, come February Please judge us both harshly! We need all the help we can get!
