Since this show takes place while another show is happening, if your horse progresses a class before this show is over, then I'll change the class for you while judging! questions should be directed at me in pms
Sky had been progressing rather well in her Show Jumping and Dressage training at home, so much so that Laura had decided to up the ante: it was time for the future Eventer to get her first taste of a proper Cross-Country course. It may have taken hours to set everything up but, judging by how playful the little mare was as she soared over logs and splashed her way through makeshift water obstacles, Laura's hard work was very much appreciated.
Laura let out an excited whoop as Rain bounced over the jump. It may not have been the largest jump, but the roan was still fairly new to this kind of work and Laura didn't want to push it. Would Rain someday be joining her younger sister, Sky, on the Eventing team? Only time will tell.
To anybody who may have seen the pair, it appeared as if Laura had taken Flower out on a simple trail ride and, while it was true that they were on a trail ride, it was a trail ride for training purposes. You see, Flower had this one...habit: she didn't like cantering but, true to her breed, she looovvved a good gallop. This, well, this was obviously a bit of a problem, so Laura tacked the leggy grey up and found some nice open space where she and Flower could work without having to worry about damaging any fences...again. The results, while not 100% perfect, were definitely an improvement.
"Good girl Winnie," Laura cooed and patted the Mustang as she slowed down to a walk. It had taken a little bit longer than expected, but Laura had finally been able to start the youngest of her horses under-saddle. Had she almost fallen off about five times in the past two weeks alone? Yes, but there were always good days and bad days when working with green horses. Luckily, today was a good day!

CW Scarlet Class: Very Green Goal: Tack fitting Ridden by: Aisha Taylor/Handed by: Rachel Silverwood
"She may only be 2 years old, but we decided it will best to start working on getting tack on her and start training here so she doesn't freak out when she hits 3 years old. Most of our horses started completing at 3 to 4 years, which is what we planning to do with her. It was more a awakened moment for her to have tack on her back and someone mounted on her, we planning to do some bareback work with her so she gets used to having someone on her back"

Wayward What you Need
Ridden by: Santiago Sala
Goal (discipline/activity): First ride under saddle unled
Wayward What you Need has been responding well to training since the last test with NFBTC he has been pretty straightforward so far! He has taken to have a rider on board like a natural we first led him round and got him used to some gentle aids but today was the day where he walked round without a leader! As you can see he got a big pat well done.

Horse name: BHR Soul LIke Honey Class: Very Green Barrel racing Molasses and Hope whirled around the barrel and their trainer let out a victory whoop. "I didn't fall off!" -Hope yelled as they hurtled to the second barrel. Molasses speedily slid around again. The horse seemed to be enjoying this more and more as they did it. They got the horse two years ago and now that he was 4, they started working with him. He was sweet, but... lazy. So when Hope decided she wanted to do barrel racing with him, everyone thought it was hopeless. It seems it isn't a lost cause afterall.

Horse name: ML Rebel Anthem Class: Very Green Ranch Work Hope Rockwell and Rebel slowly walked around the group of cows. Rebel, glad to be moving, didn't toss his head or jerk around, which he usually did. Hope however, found the task tedious. But all other stablehands and riders placed a bet, she lost, so she got the short straw and had to tend to the cattle today. This was also to help expose Rebel to other creatures, so she uneasily rode him around and around the cows, bored.
