Making sure your pony is fit and healthy
Making sure you have the best-looking pony
It doesn't matter as long as it's fun
Any competition where you can show off your fancy pony
Have a quiet ride together
Bond in any way
Show him off to the others
It doesn't matter! Just carry on riding.
Well, you tried your best to control him. Continue and hope that you get an OK score.
Try really hard for the rest of your round.
Ride positively. You can still hope!
Give him a huge smack on the shoulder with your whip and shout at him. It's all his fault!
Shrug. You didn't care about it.
You don't mind. All that matters is that you tried your best.
Congratulate the winner. It would have been nice to win but there's no point wishing.
Stay silent. You did want to win. You'll have to try harder.
Insist that you were the best rider. The winner was rubbish.
Wander over to have a good look.
Politely ask a few questions.
Feed the pony a treat and see how nice he is.
Ask some questions, but look at the pony to see how good he'll be in competitions.
Take a glance and announce that he is a worthless nag, nowhere near as good as your pony.
Oh well, never mind. It's OK.
Well, you did want to ride. You'll just have to wait until next year, though.
Watch the other riders to pick up tips. Then train when your horse is sound so you're unbeatable next year!
Grit your teeth and pretend it's OK. You're disappointed inside. But you have time to train now.
Scream and cry and throw a tantrum.
