Charlie was quite good and yesterday are days I really wish we had trails. I think that's my only complaint about my current set-up - no trails. But since it's just about perfect in every other way, I don't really mind. I just wanted to ride for 15 - 20 min and to get him out and about. Because he was so willing to go forward (something I've been struggling with), I called it quits at 15 min and headed out for a walk around the property.

I really like how much white Charlie has on his face because I think it makes him super cute but it drives me nuts that his nose is always dirty! And it doesn't help that he's not a huge fan of getting his face washed.

Oh, almost forgot! Here's the link for our show jumping round at Pine Top. We had one major oops! fence which was my totally my fault - missed the distance. But I'm pretty happy with the rest. I really need to work on keeping my reins shorter and my elbows bent...there's always something! And here's the link to the photos from HoofClix - still debating on whether to buy one or not. Charlie totally rocked his saddle pad from Kate at The Adventures of Lucy on cross country - you can see it in some of the pictures from HoofClix.
