princesskilcullen What a Wonderful 2014 Championships! Friday we placed 4th in USDF Jr/Yr Training Level with all the scores being super close. We also got our final score to qualify for RMDS First Level awards and although her canter work wasn't the best her trot work was on point.
Saturday we had our first ride at 8am which was RMDS Training Level Ponies and despite the early wakeup Kelsey really shone, Placing us Reserve Champion with a 66.3% (and 1st out of Jr/Yr's riding Training Level Ponies!) We also got Reserve Champion on our Disney Princess Training Level Freestyle which I was super happy about seeing as we hadn't practiced in at least a month. We reached all our touchpoints perfectly and despite one transition she was super.
Finally today, Sunday, We had RMDS Training Level Young Riders. Although her trot work was super we did miss our left lead canter and that brought our score down quite a bit. However we placed 5th out of 6 Young Riders and got just an amazing comment on our test.

I am so thankful that I own such a wonderful pony (even if most of the weekend she needed to be the center of attention!) and am so amazed with how far we've come in the last year.
Of course I have to thank my trainers, my family & friends and so many others for so many things and I also want to thank all of you for coming with us on out journey so thank you all!

Caroline & Kelsey

So today was just...perfect. We had a great warm up and got a 64% on our test, putting us in 4th place out of the entire region! The scores between everyone was super close [literally like 0.5 percent] and my friend Emma [ @_emmaliz_ ] got reserve champ and Megan got 3rd. Then we did a first level ride and although her canter work wasn't the best we had amazing trot work and ended up in second. It so much of a change from last year when I didn't even place and I'm so proud of my pony and how far she's come as well as how far we've come as a team!
Training Pony's and Freestyle Tomorrow!

So this morning I literally ran out of the house, half ready and was so stressed but French class was good, we actually left on time for the horse park and we had a amazing warm-up ride. I love this pony and she's just been so good. I'm still feeling a little stressed but everything's done and ready to go tomorrow! Also I got free pizza so yay! Happy Caroline & Kelsey

princesskilcullen •••I don't care how good or bad your ride went, you give your horse a hug, a kiss, pat, whatever-for being there••• Wordings kind of weird but it's completely true. Only 2 more days till Championships and the stress has started to settle in (but also the excitement!) repost pic cause I love this one but I'll hopefully have a bunch of myself and Kelsey as well as other horses from Championships! (So on Monday) stay awesome! 7d
  •   xhaltsalute77 Ive had Valentino for 11 years now :) and Chance for 4 years :) 7d
  •   tailormade7199 I've had Tailor for 5 years 7d
  •   princesskilcullen Aww it's great you finally got to lease him @p0niesandpeppermints 6d
  •   princesskilcullen Wow that's a really long time! You must have a great bond @xhaltsalute77 6d
  •   xhaltsalute77 @princesskilcullen we have a very good bond we have learned everything together we got him to be a local 4 -H show horse but he's taken me places I would have never even imagined to my first National titles and my first FEI horse and my usdf bronze and silver medals. I even got to show him in the FEI YR division even though we weren't able to make it to NAJYRC I couldn't be more pleased with my $900 arab. We are still trucking along slowly now that he's getting older but he will always be my one in a million horse even if I've got some younger fancier ones taking his place in the show ring now they will never take his place in my heart :) 6d
  •   p0niesandpeppermints Haha actually I've actually been riding him for the last 10 months with leasing on and off. Have long have you been riding/leasing/owning your horse? 6d

princesskilcullen Guys, guess who gets to see rick Riordan (author of Percy Jackson) in October?! That's right- I do! I'm legit so excited and fangirling...
And we leave for Championships on Thursday. Eeep! I lunged Kelsey yesterday and she gets today off since she'll be working the rest of the week but she's been so good I really don't feel bad giving her the day of. So lots to be excited about but now I have to go do chemistry homework I've been putting off so... 😕

Saturday! Yay! Went out to hang with the pony and lunged her. As much as I love riding I also like ground work as well because you can really see how the horse moves. Like I could really tell she was using her back and hind end today. :)

princesskilcullen Literally just a random shot from messing around with the pony. I don't know if I even like it. Sorry I haven't been on and posting as much but with school and champs coming up I've just been soooooo busy. Speaking of which I'm so excited for championships I just can't even...gah! We leave next Thursday and Kelsey has been so good I just love her to pieces. I mean just yesterday we got a piaffe-ish trot. Who can say she's not just a superstar?! That's right you can't!
Hope life is going well for all of you guys and I'll hopefully be on more after these first few weeks of school craziness end and after championships.
Ps. I have to share that Rick Riordan author of Percy Jackson one of my all time favorite series is coming to my city (yes not just state- city!) in October and I'm so psyched!
Pps. I did post a 9/11 photo on my personal @carolinecheval so I don't want any hate about how I "don't care"

princesskilcullen ѕυgαя, ѕρι¢є & ѕαѕѕ Got to ride this pony- Lily- today and she is a workout! It was great though. I had a wonderful pancake breakfast with my trainer & some of the barn girls and then got to help out at the barn. I lunged the pony Diamond, rode MG to warm him up for some of the younger girls [he was pretty fresh which is so strange for him as he's actually pretty lazy- but good!] then got to ride lily. Long working day but still great what about you guys? How was your day? Tomorrow I go ride Kelsey so yay! What are you up to tomorrow? Anything fun? 2w

princesskilcullen BATH TIME Sorry I've been lazy about posting. Pon pon was good today but we were both kind of tired so it wasn't the best ride. Plus it was like 90 degrees out so yup... Tomorrow off though so we can both rest and then back to work. She's settled in so nicely I'm just so happy. I am still a little bit stressed and frazzled (is that a word? I'm going to make it a word if it's not!) and she's been so calm and easygoing that it grounds me and make is less stressful. Plus I can tell she's really getting some of the things I'm teaching/re teaching her. Like she like to try to cross canter to get out of bending in the canter but she's been so good and really realizing what I want her to do. So proud 3w
