So Mia's second Novice show was on Saturday. Friday night I got horrible food poisoning and was so thankful for a 2p ride time on Saturday because otherwise I would have scratched. Heck, at 9a on Saturday I would have scratched if I had to leave at that moment! It was bad. Really bad. I took a double dose of pepto, immodium and some advil and finally went to the barn at 11a. Barely. While I hauled with MC and her 19yr old daughter, I was totally by myself and it was a time I really could have used help Oh well, I have shown alone a lot and the quiet focus of not puking got me through. Mia had been trimmed Friday am and unfortunately was a little footy on the outdoor substrate so she wasn't as awesome as she could have been in dressage, however we still got a 38. Why is that a good thing? Because the best score of the entire DAY for all divisions was a 33 so I don't feel so bad. The judge really didn't like Mia's haunches falling in during the canter circles and docked us a 5 on those but everything else was a 6-7. And she gave us NO feedback at the bottom. Thanks, lady.
