The Spotty Chap and I are doing our second dressage comp on Saturday.

Really looking forward to it and hoping all goes as well as last time.

We have been working hard and even doing some flexing, getting a bit more bend, and going on the bit now :D

I will be proud of my boy no matter what as he does try and work his little spotty socks off even though at times I am sure he is thinking 'muummm, I don't know what you want!'

Could not ask for a better little horse, we are far from perfect but he does try his best to be as good as the big boys and girls :D

I feel so incredibly lucky to have him.

Nearly a year can you believe! Appy-versary is on August 15th

Have to post a before and after pic of my riding, just to show how much the spotty one has changed me as a rider. They are jumping ones taken about a year apart, first one is on a lovely RS horse. Didn't do dressage until recently lol! So no old pics of that :D

I find it hard to find jumping classes which start at under 2ft. There are a few but if I want to go to my very local ones (10 minutes drive away) I need to man up and do 2ft!!!

On Sunday the show allows you to do clear rounds on the course and modify it to your requirements. My plan is to go round the clear round a couple of times and then do the course as a competitive round. I have a friend coming with me (I am not quite brave enough to go to a jumping show along just yet!) so she may take pictures but it's in an indoor school so will have to see how the light is. I really wish you lived near me and we could go mini jumping together - I have no other friends who want to jump that small!
