And were off!

Sent my entry for our first recognized show off this morning and now the next month cannot go by fast enough. Well actually it could go slow because we still have work to do! It may seem crazy to some people (those who can afford to hit every show they want) but I have never shown at this facility and have always dreamed about it. Being a horse poor college student I cannot afford to go to most 'big' shows so have settled for the schooling shows, league shows, and derbys or one days instead of the real deal. I can't wait! Now I just need to pay to update his registration (which I was supposed to do when he turned 5.... whoops) so he can get in for breed awards too. It wouldnt be much because there really are not many Gypsys that are out doing this but the few I know are also at the some training point that we are. They both have been in professional training full time and are ridden by their trainers at the shows though.
We wont actually be riding in this arena as the show is a smaller one ring show (outdoor shows and April in Oregon don't mix haha) in the indoor. So we will be in the barn you see in the upper right hand corner. It is equally as gorgeous in there though!

  2. Are you showing both days? Maybe I'll see you there Sunday if we both get in. I am selling some stuff and cancelled my Sunday lesson to help with the check I had to write for entry fees; you don't have to be a college student to be on a restrictive budget! This won't be my first time at DevonWood, however. I've competed in all four of their arenas – in years past when I had more discretionary income and fees were lower….
