Well, I survived my first show in Europe! In fact, all the horses were great considering they are so young. On Saturday I rode in the FEI 5 year old class, and on Sunday I showed two 4 year olds. I was so impressed with the quality of the horses at the show... so I took a lot of short clips with my phone and put them together. All the horses in this video are 4, 5 or 6 year olds (and none of them are me riding). Hope it works! I was blown away with how many young horses were at the show. There were 39 horses in my FEI 5 year old class and almost that many in the other young horse classes. I was also surprised when I got my ride time and it was 8:54pm! Luckily, it stays light so late here so it didn't feel like night time (until the 2 hour drive home). I am actually showing again tomorrow, so I am off to bed early. Very exciting! I will post in more detail about the shows soon.
