    Default Rubicon!

    Yippee! Remembered to enter Rubicon this morning...well, for my daughter. My boy is not quite ready yet, but it's exciting anyway! It always makes the seasons go so fast when you send entries in so early.

    Man, it will be cold by then!

    Last fall, Saturday was BEAUTIFUL!!!! Absolutely picture perfect...Sunday, however was a completely different story

    I won't be riding, but I know the big fancy grey horse is entered at training.

    I'll be there (plus 3 students, one of who is bumping up to Novice )

    Let's hope we don't have a repeat of last fall, in terms of Sunday's weather!

    I just entered at training but will hopefully be able to bump it up to prelim...don't tell my horse though, we seem to have a "rubicon curse" and I would really like to get rid of it this fall!!

    Hehe - yes, I have a rideable horse! We've already been XC schooling but I'd like to actually be somewhat competitive if we actually go -- meaning canter transitions without his nose poking out and me riding in half-seat.

    Yay, how exciting!

    And keep in mind, you do have 6 weeks to work on those canter transitions...

    Do you guys know if they are still looking for volunteers? Maybe I should check their website lol.

    If so, then I might be there volunteering!
