1st October 2009, 11:56 PM
Thought it would be great if everybody could post some pics of their proudest/best moments so far of 2009. One pic per moment otherwise it will be very clogged up!
Here are some of mine..
Coming 2nd in quite a hot race. If the horse who beat us had started where she should have instead of 10yds early we would probably have won it.
Getting him working on the bit
Winning our 1st ever SJ comp! (Then coming 4th in a race later that day.)
That'll do. Your turn!

Riding the loony project mare in a dressage show at the end of the summer and making my goal of scoring 60% or higher on both our tests.

Im just glad i have managed to do everything i have in 2009 because i suppose what i havve had has been a blessing.
We managed to get a 2nd and a 3rd in our first ridden shows after her operation.
But generally, im just proud of her, going through everything she has done and still generally being a happy well mannered pony for most of the time.
I love her so much xx

And then to top it off...finding him a lovely new home!
I was told he would never be a riding horse, that he was to dangerous and traumatised. It took a while but we showed 'em didn't we Poppy!
But proudest moment have to by far be taken up by my stunning foal!!! the best thing i ever did....buggar to all anti breeding folks! this is the best thing ever!
Troika was a star to but superseeded by rowan
ill stop now before i go on. I am proud of the guys i have found homes for, TJ and Trigger were especially special, ones i have a soft spot for and again, people condemmed. They're not perfect but someone looked past that and offered them a home which inturn helped to allow me to feed and find another a home so thank you to anyone who gave one of mine a home! you helped a load more by doing so!

This year I competed in my first affiliated showing class and won which meant I qualified for Equifest and P(uk) and if I had been a member BSPS champs.
At Equifest we won the In-hand Spotted.
This year we also qualified for Trailblazers, Royal London, Amateur showing society and Chiltern and Thames Champs. We couldn't afford to go to all of them so we went to Chiltern and Thames Champs.
First class was the Small Hunter we were pulled in 2nd to last then the judge (John Conifey) rode her and when I went out to do my conformation he told me that she was 'a lovely ride, a real goer but very responsive' I got back on we walked round and I was pulled in 2nd:D We also won the In-hand Odd coloured horse and were 3rd in the ridden odd coloured so a great end to the season.
Not bad for a FREE horse who we were told not to touch with a bargepole:D

Being in the ring with multiple other horses, one of which was being terrible, not batting an eye and winning the class
