Something So Right

Something So Right

I’ve got both a horse show hangover and a post horse show high today! Yesterday had its ups and downs, but I came out of it feeling pumped and ready to work harder. I’ve also decided on a show name for Simon that will finally stick – Something So Right (a Paul Simon song). We have to keep it, because now we have CTHJA points!

I’ll do a better write up tomorrow, but the overall summary is we showed in the 2’0″ Beginners division. There were 14 riders (mostly adorable children and packer school horses) and after a rough start in the under saddle and some questionable hunter rounds we kept improving and ended up getting a 6th in the equitation class – even with a blown lead change! I wasn’t expecting to get anything after I got off, and was just thrilled to receive our first ribbon ever πŸ™‚

Yesterday Simon showed me that he has the capability of winning these tough shows one day, and even when he’s nervous/anxious he listens to me and tries to do right. We have a lot to do but it can happen!

More to tell tomorrow, but for now I’ve got some sweet tea vodka with my name on it and a Sunday afternoon of laundry and relaxing!

  1. Glad to hear you and Simon didn’t get completely fried by the heat! You look great, can’t wait to hear all about it!

  2. So glad to hear it went well! I hate horse-show hang-overs though… lol. Totally worth it! But I spent my weekend sleeping recovering from last weekend’s horse show!

  3. Oh yay, glad the show went well! Looking forward to hearing more. I’ve been enjoying your pictures on Instagram. πŸ™‚

    BTW, did you know that your links at the bottom to change pages don’t work? They all bring you to the main page.

  4. Love the name & congrats on the ribbon – green looks lovely on him!
