I've actually already blogged about 4th grade before when I wrote about a time I got in trouble. But this time I want to write about my first horse show.
When we moved from Glade Springs to Marion, Virginia, I switched from taking western riding lessons to english. I went to a place that had American Saddlebreds and Tennessee Walking horses. My favorite horse was a large bay Tennessee Walker named Ballerina. She was smooth to ride and well-tempered. And beautiful.
I believe we borrowed the riding clothes I wore for the show. I'm guessing it was just a walk and trot class, because I don't think I learned how to canter until we'd moved to Roanoke and I started riding hunters.
Here I am on Ballerina - a lot of horse for a little girl:
I won two ribbons with Ballerina - a 2nd place and a 4th place ribbon.
It was really fun, and some of my relatives came in to watch the show.
