Is it too early to start thinking about show plans for next year? I’m not talking about carving my show plan into stone here, cause, you know, horses… but I can start dreaming right? Good.
This will be the first year since I left Seattle that I will be getting ready for a season of recognized showing and I’m pretty excited. I’m incredibly lucky here in Area III that there are so many good one days that I’ve been able to use to prepare but it’s not the same. And even better I am preparing for a show season where I actually get to show my own horse! Miracles.
So all of that being said, I don’t know where we’re really headed next year besides Area III at BN. Exciting, I know. But I also want to be pushing myself and Gus so that next winter we can hit up some schooling shows at novice. I would also like to work towards qualifying for the AECs. Not sure if I actually want to go but I’d at least like to qualify.
As for locations, I’m sure I’ll hit up Poplar and Chatt. I’m not stoked to go to Full Gallop because you can’t bring dogs which is a pain in the ass for a family like mine (I mean, I suppose I could show by myself, but I would miss having the husband around for
pictures moral support). For sure though I need to hit up River Glen to see Hillary and Annie though.
But I’m dreaming big and saving pennies now. Hopefully you’ll see us out there in a few months.
