Royalty reigns

This photo features one of the many riders I carried on Saturday.
I was a guest riding horse at the CWU Equestrian competition this past Saturday. I carried riders from two states and Canada as they tried to win ribbons. I carried a variety of riders, from a rider who was a beginner in her very first competition to a rider who had been to nationals. I adjusted what I did to the skills of each rider and did exactly what they requested. Sometimes I knew they weren't asking for the right thing, but it was my royal duty to obey them. One rider was supposed to have me canter, but she kept clucking for a trot, so trot I did....I hope she learned something about cuing from our ride. All of my riders placed and I was honored to carry them. The SPS would cheer for me and was so proud.
I had a grand time and really enjoyed my handler that was assigned to me for the day. I got lots of attention and loves. The riders who drew me were pleased when they found out. I have been invited to return in February for the hunter competition, I plan on being there.
Tue ne cede malis sed contra audentior ito (Yield not to misfortunes, but advance all the more boldly against them)
