Got to work this morning and was promptly sick in the bathroom. Back home I went to do a little work from my couch. I hate being sick. It makes me cranky. And it keeps me from going to ride my pony.
Sunday was a great, but very hot, day. LG, myself and another girl from the barn went up to watch the Red Rock Hounds hunter jumper show and we had a great time. We came prepared with champagne and a cheese/cracker/fruit spread and were never bored. I can’t wait to be able to take Dandy next year to show in their Thoroughbred Incentive Program and maybe even the Puissance wall! The girl who ended up winning that class was on a large grey and he could jump! They retired at 4’9″ and it was very impressive. It was a lot of fun but boy did it make me want to get out there showing.
Once it cooled off in the evening, I came back to the barn to get some more confirmation shots and do a quick ride.
He’s looking good! Especially now that we’re soaking his food so he can’t fling it all over the pasture. He’s like a little kid eating dirt… except it will give him colic. If soaking his food hadn’t worked, I would have gotten him a feed bag.
I love his face in this photo.
Next I tacked up for a quick ride. At LG’s suggestion, I used her rubber coated D-ring and we have a winner! He was so soft and willing in this bit. Plus he locked sexy in the Micklem Bridle.
Dandy: RAWR! I am wild horse!
(Also, I look like a lobster thanks to some not very good applying of sunscreen at the horse show. Oops!)
