My cute little dressage horse! Look how much more relaxed she is. We're getting there.
I was happy with my ride. Can you tell?
Over the first one in the 8a-b combo. We got a weird spot to this one, but rode out just fine.
Making our way through the field toward the water complex.
Kicking ass over our first trakehner. McKinna is becoming quite the XC rockstar!
Rinsing out her mouth with water before bridling up for stadium. Keeps green slime off your bit and their lips.
Lovely first fence on the stadium course. She looks so relaxed. (She wasn't.)
The fateful fence #4. This was the second of our three stops...apparently she has a thing against pianos.
I'll see what other photos I can round up - these are all from my grandpa's camera. I think my dad got some, and my mom got some video, and then there's the official photographer...and of course the full report is yet to come!
McKinna's getting a well-deserved day off today. I'm not even going out to see her, and I trust she's thoroughly enjoying a day out in the field stuffing her face with grass. Tomorrow we'll head out to say hi and check her over, but I don't think I'll be back in the saddle till Wednesday or Thursday.
