Horse Show Pics

Cadence and I are (hopefully) heading out for some cross country schooling tomorrow.  I've never been to the facility before, so it should be fun.  In the mean time, here are some pics from the CT Show.  Unfortunatel, the professional photographer only shot stadium, and my photographer only managed to capture my final halt salute, so our semi-awesome dressage test lacks proof.  Ah well, such is life.
 Halt at the end of our test.

 Warm Up
Center line before final halt
 First XC Jump (surprisingly little over jump.  I was proud!)
 Second time over that fence
 Off of the drop
Off te drop again
 Up the bank
 Up the bank again... terrible shot
 Watchin the world (... horses....) go by
 Cadence attempting (and semi-failing) to refuse a scary looking fence. 
She isn't actually jumping it here... but I'm still madly trying to get her over it.  Not our finest (okay, not my finest) moment.
 Much more successful.  Sorry about the trees in the way!
 Off the bank!
 The icky gucky water that everyone ended up jumping.  Can't blame 'em.
Cadence dutifully keeping an eye on the scary red shed and horses in the field... while we're supposed to be jumping our course ;)

We were given a jump to try by the judge.  Perfect first go, but we'd already been eliminated :(
