hi all, i've just to have a gloat in a good way. i was at a show today, my son came along as well but didn't ride and he had a ball with my mum and bro's girlfriend along with her dog. i have gotten my best ever wins of fat ribbons, i've competed for a long time but have never brought home more than one fatter ribbon at a show. today i brought home, one champion, 2 reserves, high point a.s.h., and 2nd in my tournout. i even had competition on getting the ribbons. not as if i was the only one in the classes. i think my mare got a big head after winning the champion cause she was a fidjet after that. but settled when i did classes or at least best she would. so how have you all gone in sports? any big wins that really make it more worth while? and that keep you going.

First of all..congrats! I've never done the sports thing much but my children are really into them. My daughter has been with a team that has won some cheerleading competitions and I love going and watching them.

Well..the movies really show a dingy type girl but the truth is that the girls are often not like that. They have to maintain certain grades and have very intense practices. My daughter practices everyday after school for at least two hours. That's not for the games. They just do basic cheers and halftime shows for those but their competitions are very grueling and competitive. The girls have to be in great shape to do some of the stunts and gymnastics involved.

Hi Weasel, Congratulations! You made it and you deserve a TOAST AND CHEERS! I never had any experience of winning in a sport although i play volleyball, bowling and basketball but just for the fun of it not to consider any competition.

You're right! It's merely for fun. I don't have any experience yet watching over competition for horses but had an experience riding once for a picture taken in one of the nice spots in our country.
