Not as exciting as yesterday, but it was still fun to be there. Today was Beginner/Novice Show Jumping. It was a rough run for many of the competitor’s. Most made it through clean but a few hit some rough spots. We are at 90+ F the humidity is pretty high and I wonder what effect this had on the horses. For me, it was like trying to walk through a bowl of soup. It was hot, sticky and uncomfortable. I can’t imagine what both the horse and riders were feeling. Though, this is summer and competitions are held in summer….
Tomorrow promises a bit more excitement as the more experienced riders are due to compete in the Cross Country. I will be in my little shady spot near the water jump.
I wish I had a better lens, one that could get me closer to both horse and riders faces. We’ll see what I can get tomorrow….
