21. Favorite classes to watch
For sure it would be upper level cross country and FEI musical freestyles! Both are SO much fun to watch!
22. What's in your cooler at shows
I am really bad about packing food. Normally its just some Snapple or Gatorade and goldfish or something. I dont eat before I ride because I get a side ache.
23. One thing about showing you would change
More so now that I have a horse that isnt 'the norm' I would change how much tunnel vision the big people of both eventing and dressage have. They think only TBs can compete/win in eventing and only Warmbloods can do dressage, etc. Then there is the hunter world. Dont even get me started there! I think it would be fun to show Pony at some hunter shows but wouldn't pay that money just to have the judge mark us down strictly because of my horses look.
24. My ringside crew
I pretty much has the best ringside crew out there if I do say so myself! Both my mom and Alanna are a HUGE help at shows and I really dont know what I would do without them! I could do small dressage shows or hunter/jumper schooling shows alone if I had to (not as much fun though!) but there is literally no way I could have done Inavale without them! It was so hot and they were all over it once I finished xc and stadium. They had water ready for me, untacked Pony and started walking him, etc. Seriously, they are amazing!
25. Best prizes won
Pony has won a cooler (high % score at a dressage show at first level!), a trophy, a saddle pad, and a glass plate along with a lot of blue ribbons :)
