OK, show number three. Different venue, different judge. Still schooling tho.
Judge loooooved him. Who doesn't love a giant baby whale blubbering around?
68% TL2 2nd place.
66% TL3 but DQ'd because of THREE errors of course - WITH a reader!
1: my fault - didn't read the test
2 and 3: I asked for canter, got NOTHING, then gave him a whap, so got bucks. Decided a do-over on those circles was in order. Got DQ'd.
He was SO behind the leg. But he's improved, he traveled well (with a companion), he wasn't spooky just whinnying and stiff, and I worked really hard on the canter deps and he got all of them on the correct lead!
Also my kind friends helped me braid, called my test, and babysat me and him all day. I came away very happy and supported, despite the video being agonizing to watch!
