Going to keep today’s post to mostly images. Went to the barn last night expecting to see my horse looking good and ready to start tack walking, and he was quite lame again. I’m really upset, worried and frustrated. Going to call a new vet out to get a full work up done so I can get some answers, but if you could send out some positive vibes for Simon I would really appreciate it.
For now, lots of Grand Prix photos for y’all so you don’t have to listen to me whine about my lame horse.
Last year with the Olympic trials the best horses were resting during this big money class, but this year everyone was out in their finery.
Unfortunately the course wasn’t an ideal set up for taking photos this year, but I did the best that I could.
The first half was a mix of people I hadn’t heard of before and amateurs.
Among this group, there were some interesting rides and er… Fashion choices.
After the drag is when I really started to get excited though. We had Ian Miller, Captain Canada!
McClain and Antares, who is just as beautiful in person as he is in pictures (the horse of course!).
Laura and Cedric
Reed and Cylana
Beezie and Simon (a great name for a horse)
Several of these riders went clear, and although it wasn’t a great Grand Prix for jumping it was for spectating!
