Well, this one didn’t turn out quite the way we’d hoped from a ribbon standpoint, but Piper rode really well. She took 4th in Equitation on the Flat, and 2nd in Jumping. Equitation can be based quite a bit on the judge, especially if the riders are close in their riding abilities, so her instructor said that she really shouldn’t worry about it since it was going to happen occasionally no matter how well she rode. It was amazing to see the difference in her skills from this show and the one in October. She nailed her diagonals, and had a just beautiful canter on Simon (not an easy accomplishment). Her jumping this time was pretty much dead on the centers. Tim and I were extremely proud of her.
