*Warning- This is going to be a picture heavy and a "gushing mother" post.*
Grace participated in her first horse show today. She has been riding since the fall and we really love the barn where she rides. This year, the equestrian center decided to host a show for all of their riders. It was a wonderful experience for Grace!
She was very nervous beforehand but conquered her fear and did wonderfully well! She rode Scout, who had been ridden earlier in the morning and had had a bit of a hard time (nerves maybe?), but other than being a little reluctant to cantor at first, he performed beautifully!
I overheard Grace telling Scout exactly what moves they were going to be doing. It was sweet.
As I listened to the judges calling out all the moves they were to perform I must admit that I was astounded that Grace knew how to do all that she did. She always amazes me with all that she knows about horses!
