Show Time!

>> Friday, October 9, 2009

By the time you read this it will be Friday. Tango and I will be on our way to the last show of the season. I seriously hope that talk I had with Tango about his manners will carry over to the show.
I really need the boy to cooperate. The show will be challenging for a couple reasons. First of all, Tango and I are fairly new to this dressage stuff. We have to think every step of the way. A lot of the responsibility falls on me. I have to give Tango the right signals in order for him to do what he needs to do.
When the weather is dry and sunny I can think more clearly. We're supposed to have between two and four inches of rain tonight and tomorrow. That means that Tango and I will be riding in less that desirable circumstances. In fact, it will be a little scary for me because the arenas will be slippery. I've never seen them cancel a show, so ride we will.
Tango's a sure-footed boy so I just need to stay calm. The good thing about the mud is that the judges won't be too critical of the dirt that Tango just can't stay out of even on a good day. I don't have to spit shine him as much as usual.
We're riding at 2:00, 2:25, and 4:00 on Saturday. On Sunday we're riding at 9:45, 3:30, and 4:24. It's going to be a long fun weekend. Wish us luck! We'll let you know how things go when we get back!

What with mud likely to be so much in abundance, the paint job Tango had a couple of weeks ago might have gone unnoticed !

Good luck, be safe and above all have fun!

Wishing you and Tango the best of luck. It takes two to Tango and I am sure you both will be a great team. Hope the mud and rain didn't cause too much of a muss. Can't wait to hear how it went and hear the stories.

First of all have fun.
It will be a little muddy- but I bet Tango will know what to do.
We know the 2 of you will shine!
Can't wait for you to tell us all the story of how it went!

Wishing you those magical moments when the two of you are in perfect sinc and are a TEAM. Oh, that and good footing.

Hope you have a great show! I have many memories of rain so hard that it poured of the rim of my tophat in a steady stream! Wearing raincoats is great & all, but when the pockets fill with water it can get a little heavy!!

Cleared off nicely yesterday so hope that helped. Suitcase is heading out to St. Louis very soon, will try to call you in route. Best of luck to you and Tango.

Ah, wow, you bring back memories of my riding days. My old boy had a blaze just like Tango's. Best of luck at the show - can't wait to hear how it went!

Работа - как езда на велосипеде: если бросите крутить педали, ударитесь лицом об землю. неусыпный труд препятствия преодолевает. Безделье бывает разное, но результат одинаково плачевный. Бездельник покинут жизнью. Неусыпный труд все препятствия преодолевает. Работа - мое первое наслаждение. Отец учил меня работать, а не любить работу. Труд - основа жизни.
