This year, several of Chemaine's other students wanted to start qualifying for next year, so they entered a two-day show on October 24/25 and asked me to join in. I hesitated at first because there was a clinic I wanted to do in November, but after giving it some thought, I sent in an entry.
More important than that though, I realized that this show gives me another opportunity to get the last score I need for my Rider Performance Award at First Level. It's not the Bronze Medal, but it's certainly a step in the right direction.
We might not get the score of course, but I am feeling pretty good about our chances. And if we don't get it at this show, we'll get it at the next one.
