I was told today that another Adult Newbie Rider was going to compete at our local show next month after seeing me doing it this month. That sure means a lot. Sometimes the really experienced riders can be a bit intimidating, so I totally understand the hesitation to undertake competing.
Not even sure that I am at the level myself, where I really should be entering any show arena, but why not?
So you go, Michael, Go with your bad self! :)
