Baronial Equestrian Champion

Yeah, kinda stunned me, too. :) 

Chamfron went off without a hitch, and my Quest was very well received, with several people running it multiple times, sometimes swapping horses to do so, and I even got to ride it myself bareback on Aziza.  She was introduced to the dreaded blue tarp for the very first time, and though I would have gotten a much better score/time had I dismounted and led her around the tarp, I am far more proud of the fact that I was able to coax her over it with just seat, legs and voice (and of course lots of mane rubbing and encouragement).  The rest she danced through like the trooper she is (though she tried to pretend the logs immediately after the tarp were also scary; once she realized nothing else was That Big A Deal, she gave up on the attention-seeking and headed through the obstacles like a veteran).

Bad part?  Topping the quest idea next year. I hope Alphia autocrats. :P

This weekend is the Equestrian Symposium in Rivenstar. I am planning on going, though that may turn out to be overly ambitious, but they're planning on having a kingdom marshal's meeting that I'd really like to be a part of.  We shall see!
