1) Dressage late enough that I can braid in the morning.
2) Cross country BEFORE stadium, as God intended.
3) Showjumping OUTDOORS! (Let's just say that in the past Gully and I have been highly challenged by the coliseum.)
I'll have to bring a gift for Penny. What do you suppose she likes? Flowers? Wine?
Penny- gift? wine is good!!!! Just you being there-priceless!!
Hope to see many of you there! Hubby and I will be stadium warm-up stewards Friday afternoon for the I divisions, then starting Phase A at 7:30am Saturday morning, then will be back in stadium warm-up Saturday 1:00- 7:40pm or so; then Sunday morning at 7:30am for the duration. Sorry we will miss all the training stadium rides, as you will be outside. Please stop by and say HI anyway!!! Hoping and praying for a good, safe show that is fun for all!
Here is a link to places to eat in Lexington - please PM me if you have questions about a certain place...... http://www.lexingtonvirginia.com/res.asp
We actually do have many places in town to eat that are quite decent.
Hey, so i have a question about the VA HT/overnight HT on general. what do you all normally do in terms of locking up equipment.this is my first overnight and was wondering if people leave locked tack trunks w/ equipment in barns/ do you keep hay/feed on the trailer and just haul it up when its time to feed? do you lock your tack up in trailers? is tack theft all that prevalent at events?
I usually leave feed and a bale of hay in front of the stall, any extra hay in the trailer. I plan on locking my trailer dressing room door this time because I finally found the key , but i've also just kept everything in my car and driven it around...and I've left it in my trailer unlocked and not had any trouble. I don't know if theft has ever been an issue at the horse center, but I've never had trouble (knock on wood) Some people do leave small tack trunks in the barn, but unless you get a tack stall things get crowded rather easily (I bring saddle stand/saddles/bridles etc down in the morning, take back up at night).
I'm HOPING to be there. Q is dealing with an abscess that we hope will be resolved before then Also, momma still hasn't foaled so I might not be able to get away. We're at 353 today and vet has thought she would foal 99.9% sure the last two nights. She just won't let go!
Anyway, I really hope to make it as it is my favorite event and I can't wait to see everyone!!!!!
