July 18th Horse Show

Well, we started the day off with high hopes. We got all the gear loaded, both horses loaded into the trailer and off we went. The weather was spectacular and everything seemed ok. Jet was a bit off so cold hosed him and walked him around. T decided to use Montero for the opening ceremony. She did great on him but he had quite a bit of get-up-and-go and didn't really want to slow down. Montero blew threw the poles in the first and again decided he didn't want to slow down so we scratched him for the night rather than running the risk of T getting hurt. He seemed not-quite-right, not physically but mentally. She didn't ride the first 2 classes on Jet but he seemed to warm out of whatever was bothering him so she competed in the other 5 classes. She placed in 4 - a first place, two second places and a fourth. She's still #2 in points for the year. It was just an off night but I'm glad that she was able to salvage it in the end. We'll work with Montero to see what's going on with him.
