And lord knows Prairie is NOT interested in it.
Yesterday the winds kicked up here in the desert which didn't wreak too much havoc in the big rings, but down where is baby Ammys play - things got... Interesting. Though at least the poor judge watching 100 2' trips had something more interesting to watch.
Prair was convinced that te far end of the ring was not to be trusted, and in our first two trips - that concern caused some trouble. First round I could barely get her down the diagonal to our first single (away) and she swapped leads about 42 times in the process (bonus points for tempis? No?)
Second round we demonstrated lovely half passes away from the fence line, though our jumps and lines were surprisingly decent.
(Looks Shockingly like last year)
Third round the wind died down for a well timed 90 seconds and we managed a clean round for a 2nd (out of 26). Fourth round was also pretty clean and we got another 2nd even with a small scamper at the far end.
We won the hack and that was enough for reserve of the 2' windy-ammy division.
Earlier in the week Prair did an excellent job with N managing to grab a few low ribbons (out of 40) and a blue in the hack (those expensive aluminum shoes are earning their keep..)
Today we ride a 2'3" hunter and eq divisions so we'll see how that goes.
