Even after all of that, our stretchy trot was again improved. Not enough to earn a six, but at least there was some downward movement. And to wrap up the weekend, we nailed the final trot up the centerline, 7.0.
We earned a 57.200 % which was very close to Saturday's scores, but this ride felt nowhere as nice as those rides. My "goods" must not be as nice as I think they are, and my "bads" aren't as terrible as they feel!
My fear was to place 10th out of ten. Fear realized. We earned a beautiful ribbon though! Click images to enlarge.
I am pretty sure Speedy's season is over. I do have two more shows listed in the pending column over there on the right, but I don't think Speedy will be going. He's done an awful lot this year: he was shown 15 days, at 12 shows, in 30 tests, in 11 months. We're tired, or at least I am. Speedy G's got staying power; he could probably just keep on going! Sydney may get to go later this month. If not, I am good until the spring of 2013!
