Well after many set backs I eventually made my show debut at the Cheshire County Show on the 23rd June 09. It was a very long day and a 4am start to arrive at 6.45am to get a good spot. I did not travel well and being boxed was all new, but I am sure it will get easier the more times I am transported.
It was a really warm day and my class was called at 11.30am. I came of the box looking in fine fettle as my Trainer Mr Smith worked really hard for several hours to get me looking in good show standard.
Well I was a good boy when being shown to begin with and the judge cast his eye over me several times. I trotted and walk in good order with my tail well up in the air. Unfortunately when it came to standing still I really was naughty and did not do as I was told by my Mummy and Handler. The judge spoke to my handler and asked if I was being a touch to much on my toe's. This naughty behaviour cost me a rosette by one place on my debut so it is back to work after a days rest for the Derby County Show this weekend.
Overall my family and me and my future rider and handler Simone had a great day. We have learnt alot from the experience and there is no reason I should not improve in the future with more training and show experience. Please check out any photograp-hs of me in my Photo Gallery at the Cheshire Show. My trainer also got some beautiful photographs of other competitors at this show so check them out CLICK HERE
