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 🙂
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!

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!

Yeah… I’m asking my computer programmer husband to help me fix it tonight 🙂 Have been meaning to for a while now!
