What have I done?


I've officially entered myself and Baby Fred (proudly entered under her Jockey Club name of Expect Freedom) in a combined test at Gallery Farm next weekend. 

We're entered in the Green as Grass division, where the dressage test is Intro B and the maximum XC height is 18". I'm confident that Freddie will be just fine if I can keep myself from getting very nervous. It's been years since I actually competed in any kind of show, and I'll be riding a super greenie! 

Fred's had a great week of work though, with a pretty calm trail ride, more cantering without bucking, and even a little baby cross-country jump. This show seems like the perfect, low-key opportunity to make a debut.
