We are now 9 days out from my next show, and I am doing a stellar job preparing… NOT (You have to read that ‘not’ in a Borat voice or it loses all effect). Let me share with you some of my plan, so you can duplicate before your next big shindig.
Stress eat because work is so… stressful. Added bonus for trying on your show clothes and having the buttons on your show shirt laugh at your attempts to button them across your chest. Panic, and order new show shirts and extra squishy sports bra.
Go on vacation for a week. Do nothing remotely physical. Drink too much. Eat too much of your mother’s food. Don’t even look at a horse. It’s no big deal, the horse show isn’t until the middle of September!
Dodge lightning to driving to the barn, because you have to ride. You have to ride. Right… right? It’s just a little rain… right?!?
Since you’re never going to be prepared with your actual riding – buy new show clothes. Eh, the hunters are all about style anyway. Maybe they will give us a ribbon for best turn out? Maybe we can just go to the show and walk around looking handsome?
Keep your fingers crossed the ring is dry enough for me to ride today… I am going to need it!
