    Aww no good dude! I was wondering why you weren't there. I only just got home. It's all Princeton's fault! :p I had to hear about her fantastic lesson and weekend LOL! Very happy with how he went. Of course he got a few poles but we didn't reufse anything, even though the 1.05m was kinda BIG! I was very happy that we got around both times with NO refusals! Go JAG PONY!

    Well lets just say my day was a good learning curve and Laina and Nik need alot more showjumping day practice:p

    Apart from our blue ribbon in the blue ribbon round (hehehehe:p ), we had a very average day. Had 2 refusals in the 75cm and a fall in the 90cm (although I swear that hedge jump was so way bigger! LOL). I think pony was pooped by the 90 and I blame myself for putting an unfit pony through it - not very fair. I'm still proud of the fat grey thing, and I learnt alot but need alot more practice before I start being a proper competitor hehe:D

    Thanks Stacey for your support, muchly appreciated! AND I still need to pay you for that breastplate... woops:rolleyes:

    Great photos everyone.
    I literally walked in the door now.
    Harry was great, we had two great rounds.
    the 60cm clear round we went clear until the very last jump when I looked down and Harry hesitated and boom knocked the rail DOH.
    THE AM7 60cm we went clear with time penalties - I was happy; All I wanted from the day was to get harry to load and travel well on the float to go around clear and not fall off.

    I learn't many things, firstly a simple apple mouth straight bar will not work for Harry and I right now, I need to ride more assertively and sit back after a jump to bring him back under control. I didn't do this on the first round but on the 2nd it was much better - still not pretty lol but better.

    the OH and Coda_cowgirl got a heap of photos which I will upload in a tick, and as long as I don't look like a giant pimple on Harry I may post some - Wore my new hacking jacket which is still a little tight but quite comfortable to ride in; and gives me more inspiration to continue on the weight loss. I am sure that there were some people that thought what is that fat chick doing on that poor horse and to those people I simply thought Bite me. I am proud of what I have achived in the past 6 months and in the past 2 weeks after our fall and I know that this is just the start to a great relationship with Harry.

    Oh Andhi! You should be so amazingly proud of what you have achieved - Not just with Harry but with Jazz too. You are an inspiration. Don't give up - I know you won't, I know that you will continue on your amazing life changing journey.

    Those people can go and get stuffed. Just because they are twigs doesn't mean anything. Twig size - Is ugly! ROFL

    Good job with little Harry.

    NIICKKKEEELLLLOOODEEEEOOON!! Omg chicky, well done! You guys looked brilliant! Look at those heights! eek! So proud! I hope you arn't to sore tomorrow! Your little pony is gorgeous. hahaha

    Lol, Andhi! Well done mate. You and Harry looked great mate, and not out of control at all and he seemed well behaved and looked excellent. I guess it's a very individual thing though. :) Just confidence from here on up mate.

    I didn't think you looked bad on him at all. Well done!

    And Andhi, GOOD FOR YOU!!! You have done amazingly well with losing the weight and you proceed to do so! What an achievement and journey - and it still isn't finished! I look forward to the day that you come out onto the eventing field with us:)* I think Harry is such a lovely boy, and he looked so calm and steady for you today, so congrats!

    hehe Thanks guys :)
    I appreciate your support and kind words.
    I had a look at some of my photos and actually cried - how on earth did I allow myself to get to this weight? So I am printing one of the horrible ones up and sticking it on my fridge and pantry door - just as a reminder.

    Harry was very very strong, and very keen and fresh. He is a horse that you really have to ride you can't just be a passenger. He did come back when I asked him to, but we need to fine tune it without loosing impulsion.

    It was lovely seeing so many stockies :)

    Here are my favorite three photos of Boofhead and I taken by Coda_cowgirl and my OH.
