While, I really hope her mare is better, part of me is super excited that she thinks Pongo is ready and capable to do a recognized event at Beginner Novice. I also think that if she really focuses on dressage, they have the ability to do well together. He does need a bit of a tune up, so he looses up through the left side more. But he is more than capable of doing the jumping and with her confidence they shouldn't run into any problems.
I will keep everyone updated if they do go (I have mixed feelings. I want Pongo to go, but I don't want S's horse to be lame either...). Either way, I am so happy that she feels confident in what I have done with him to take him to a recognized event.
