I did cover myself in glory at the Great Britain Dressage Championships bringing home lots of pretty ribbons. I scared all the competition by winning the first warm up class, which was a great tactic, but sadly I couldn't maintain that relaxed energy level for the whole competition. I found it all a little overwhelming and just became too tired to bounce my way to another win, though I did come 6th in the freestyle to music, as well as managing two more 9th places in the other warm up classes. I now have my own championship rosette wall, so I'm going to work hard to see what other championships I can get to. Below are my rosettes from the Great Britain Dressage Championsips.
As part of this plan for more Championship wins Mum has decided to give me a brrrrrrrr clip - I'm freezing cold now, the silly woman has cut all my hair off - errrrr Mum I can dance if I'm shivering. Thank goodness she did have enough respect to leave my legs and mane alone, for one minute I thought she was going to turn me into a fully hogged cob! (Sorry Zippy cobs are cool). This has been done on the recommendation of our dressage instructor, Becky. I have to say I'm not much of a fan of Becky, she's put me on a diet and now has got all my hair cut off, all so I go more forward. I'm going forward now straight into my stable and I'm going to demand a super thick duvet tonight and I'm not coming out till I'm warm - I fear though my wishes will not come true and I'm going to get some poor thin rug so I can shiver off the little weight I have left, at least I still look handsome at the moment. Are skin and bones a fashionable look? As I think that's what I'll be by the morning. Night, night from this pony block of ice, ohhhh hay yummy munching lots of this should help keep me warm.
