    We moved up to Novice last weekend. You can see my older threads of his progress from each show. I was nervous because he's iffy with oxers (tight in his shoulders, doesn't want to reach/stretch so we've been really working on that) and there were a few jumps on XC that were beastly compared to what he's seen. His dressage test went great, got a 36 his first time at a new level so I was pumped.

    Stadium warmup was rough, but his stadium round was darn near perfect. He had one jump that he looked at and hesitated at the beginning of XC, but after that he was a machine around that course. I was nervous and ran out of air, so I was heaving but he just kept on going and did everything no questions asked. He just galloped the whole thing like he's been doing it forever. I was so tired but so excited to get through those finish flags completing on our dressage score.

    HERE COMES PHOTOS AND VIDEOS.
