I have decided to take Tesoro to the Evergreen Gaited Showcase in two weeks. I have been riding Tesoro consistently so I feel like he is in good shape and there are only 3 Paso Fino classes, so between that and a few OGB (Open Gaited Breed) classes, we will take it pretty easy.
What I plan to spend a lot of time on this time is mentally preparing myself for the show. Tesoro is SO sensitive that when I am doing anything but relaxing, he is translating my tension into poor performance. I am going to meditate on my riding for 5 minutes every day for the 12 days, I know that this will help Tesoro and I be team and take us to the next level.
Wish us luck!
