Salvation & Satin

Holy smokes Day 2 was significantly less disastrous than Day 1. Prair had two more classes over fences and a flat class to finish her baby-horse-at-a-big-show division.



Flat was first and they (mercifully) did a California split so she only had 20 horses rolling around, not 40.

She wasn't as over her back and floaty as she has been recently, but I think much of that is due to the fact the N deliberately under powered her to avoid some stress.

There were some NICE horses in the class and I was thrilled to take 4th, and claim Prair's first satin of the show!

Before her round over fences, we burned another schooling ticket and Prair got to work over some courses away from the general warm up ring. She went straight from there to a waiting gate and put in a very solid course that was good enough for another 5th!

Her second round was in a different ring and there was quite a backup so she ended up having to stand around for nearly an hour before finishing the day.

I was a tad apprehensive that she'd be cranky and ticked off for the final round, but she held it together and snagged a 4th!!

Overall a much, much more relaxed day and glad to have some satin to show for it!

Now it's just up to me to actually ride... :)
