That's right folks, Buttercup (aka As You Wish) and I went to our first show since this entire ordeal went down. In fact, this is only Bud's second show, and first dressage show for the both of us. I'm so pleased!
We scored 67.0 on both Intro A and Intro B, winning second and third place, respectively.
I was just happy to finally be there. I ended up crying I was so happy to be in that moment and time.
We had some rough spots in both tests that come down to consistency/tempo and our transitions but those will get better with more time.
(This is the big surprise update I promised a few weeks back!)
