So, it's been a while since I updated, but this past Sunday, Ancaster and I competed in our first trillium show in the 0.9m division. We had a fantastic day!
We went clear in our clear round class, In our table A class I just didn't have enough right leg into the last one stride, so he wasn't quite straight, so he touched a pole on the oxer (our second last fence :( ) and the whole jump came down! Despite the jump coming down however, we were apparently just out of the ribbons out of (I believe) 33 entries. In our speed class Ancaster felt a little wild and unresponsive, which I didn't handle anywhere near as well as I would have liked, so Ancaster managed to get us out with just a refusal and a rail down. Then in our final course (our power-speed class) was really good for the most part, however I got a really bad distance near the end of the power portion and nearly came off, but I managed to stay on, but unfortunately didn't recover fast enough and we had the next rail down, so we could not complete the course. :(
Anyway, I was really happy with how we did overall, and so was my coach and I'm looking forward to our next show in two weeks, where we can improve on our performance. :)
