    You and Ace remind me of an old, old member with a handle something along the lines of Eventingdaydream or something close to that. She had an old palomino ranch horse called Pal that she turned into an eventer and man! They were a match made in heaven!

    Ace looks lovely and you look really nice up there. Good work! Crazy to think he's bred for barrels and he chose to be an English pony!

    Thank you so much! It's been a lot of work but fun! Right now he's aimed at Hunter Jumper so there's no "race" to it and we just relax. I think he's going to be an excellent show jumper!

    We finally made it to a show! It rained all week at home so we didn't ride much but he rode great last night and this morning at the show grounds! We are about ready to tack up and start preparing to show! I should have videos if the pics don't turn out (camera ran away)!

    Some pics from the show today! We did the 2' Warm Up, 2' Jr/Amateur O/F, and the 2' Jr/Amateur Equitation. Placed 5 out of 6 in the Equitation, the other class had 16-20 people in it and we knocked a rail. I can honestly say, 90% of our mistakes were completely my fault. All in all we did pretty good for our first show! Pretty darn proud of this guy for handling this so well and dealing with my mistakes so well!

    He is so grown up looking. I remember him as a baby, lol.

    Nice to see you both doing so well.

    If I remember correctly he is sired by Jasper from here? Haven't seen any recent posts on that stallion.

    Thank you! Yes he is a Jasper kid! He has simply flourished since we switched disciplines!

    Videos! Posting in order that they actually happened. I made quite a few mistakes and Ace was a bit strong at times but all and all I feel like we did pretty good for our first show! I know exactly where I screwed up in each video and plan to focus on breathing more and trying not to over think tomorrow! In the second video I looked down at almost every jump and it costed us a knocked rail. We also don't have flying lead changes down pat yet and I failed him I getting him switched over at times.

    I can not be happier with how awesome Ace is handling all is and how well he deals with my mistakes! I feel so blessed to own this amazing athlete and I'm so excited for our future!
