|She's totally over being an English pony.|
So the show in September I was planning on attending and competing English in? Yah, looks like I’ll be working. Not necessarily as saddening as it sounds, because I was a bit frustrated that Suzie and I were doing so well Western and then I’d have compete English in September since the show isn’t going to offer any Western classes. I understand, but gah!
Of course, I haven’t received an iron-clad answer but the gist is that hours and days are changing pretty fast. I work in Construction, so this isn’t necessarily a surprise or alarming to any of the Craft or Non-Manuals like me. This flip-flopping I’ve been doing between showing English VS Western is seriously getting old and I really only have two options at this point.
If I want to show Suzie Western, it’ll have to be at the BVX where there is a multitude Western classes available (including “Beginner Reining”). The Breed Show I am attending this coming weekend does not have “Beginner” Reining classes (and I honestly have no desire to show in Western Pleasure) so that’s one of the reasons I’ll be competing English. One of the other reasons is the simple fact it’s a Breed Show and English/Western classes are pretty similar in sense of movement and head carriage. And lastly, it’ll give me a good idea of what Suzie will be like in a “real” show setting since the BVX is the biggest of them in my area.
So I have some thinking to do. Do I take Spud to compete in Driving at the BVX or do I take Suzie?
The deadline for the BVX is August 15, so I have until then to decide. No pressure or anything.
