Back on “Track”

Lately, I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about what I want from Dandy… what my goals are… how do I get to those goals? It hasn’t been as easy as I thought it would be.

Obviously I want to event. But what’s my dream? Do I get to training? Prelim? Intermediate?! LG is of the opinion that if I am careful with him and give him confidence building experiences, Dandy will take me as far as I want to go. I just wish I knew what that was.

Anyway, enough about that because I’m not even sure what I want.

Took Dandy on a hack yesterday down the road. Clearly I didn’t learn anything from my four years of working at summer camps and decided that rolling thunder was nothing to be concerned about.

Of course the scariest bit was a deer statue that Dandy spooked at about ten times! The flies were horrible so we couldn’t be out long. On the very last round, one of the local farm residents was coming up on his four wheeler. He was nice enough to stop but I also took it as an opportunity to gallop down the road. What a blast! I love galloping Dandy.

And even his Mary Janes stayed on on! Yay!
I love my OTTB.
Dandy, I am confident that you and I will be able to do whatever we want. Let’s just figure out what that is first!
