Yesterday was a tough day for Raelynn. She got frustrated and scared and that is never a good combination. She has came so far and is doing so well but still has so much to learn. Her pony is a good pony but also very stubborn. He did not cooperate yesterday and even did a small buck on her. Anyway, racing was a disaster and she was in tears. She wants to do so well and has glimpses of competitiveness but most of the time she just wants to have fun which is great but I know if she does well she has fun when she doesn't do well she doesn't have fun. Anyway it can be frustrating for all of us. We are going to try another pony next week which will be interesting and she is going to work on more of the show classes because she does really well with them.
I am always amazed at the wonderful people at the horse shows. They are so kind and so generous. There are so many different personalities but I have to say I am really starting to enjoy the shows more on that aspect. I also love spending the day outside and with Raelynn. She loves everything about it and I don't see her passion dying just frustration increasing. I believe she will continue to work hard as she has a goal to qualify for state fair!
