4th out of 12!

not great shots (it's just TOO DARK these days) - but it will give you an idea of the horse show.  Sabin competed in LD1 - a dressage pattern that you do at the trot and the walk.

far pinned on the pin in the wrong spot - i fixed it before she competed.
off down the center line - matilde looks grey with her new haircut.
i love the fresh cut on her tail as well - why didn't we do that? it looks so good with a blunt cut!
kind of a fast trot.
4th place of 12!

sabin ended up in fourth place overall (out of 12) - pretty good for the first time completing the class. one of the girls in her class was in her 20s! tho' it looks like a 6th place ribbon, it's actually 4th (everyone from 3rd and beyond get green in denmark). and best of all, she's already declared she wants to do it again!

sabin & matilde are ready for christmas

matilde's new haircut. 
and her reindeer ears!

they leave the furry bits where the saddle goes, to make it more comfortable.

hugs for tilly bear.

and a santa hat for the riding helmet.
