|Fancy show jumping Cuna|
Trot he did, flicky toes and all, with his head in the air and snorting. It was absolutely hilarious except for one thing: his beautiful topline is gone. Vanished. Scary. I was so sad at the state of his neck that I put him away with no cookies.
He threw his hay on the ground and tipped over his water bucket. AND pinned his ears at me.
Grumpy faces all around for several days. I'm focusing on the fact that the weather HAS to get better and that we can build another topline. He's focusing on the giant bag of peppermints I got him, and we're on the road to reconciliation. I may even be able to get on him today, provided we don't have another bout of freezing rain.
So. Let's pretend his topline comes right back and I end up with a paying job. In that fun and magical world, here is the projected show schedule for Cuna and I:
April 27&28 - Show jumping clinic with Julie Winkle, 3' - 3'3" group
May 11 - Boise Pony Club schooling jumper show 2'9" - 3'3"
May 24-26 - XC schooling and derby at novice
? June 8-9 - H/J show in Bellevue, ID
June 22 - Dressage at Les Bois (we can hack there!), training 3 and first 1.
June 29-30 - Unrecognized horse trial (local) at novice
August (10-11, 24-25) - both IHJA jumper shows at the Idaho Center.
September 7 - BPC schooling jumper show

No one tell Cuna about the dressage show or we might have another fight. ;)
