Yup show is coming and I have heard already 50 horses will be in the competition.
I will go for the milleage since my 2 greenies are more jumper style than hunter style type of horse.
So we have been practicing the trailer the jog and I change a couple of things to really work on anxiety of any kind, check how many minutes each of them need to yield and come down. I just hope they'll both act well on sunday...
Otherwise I am ok if I don't forget my med as I did yesterday..Oh boy ! I should not mess with this.
Elene, I hope you realize that one of the reasons you were born was to create in others the ability to stop and appreciate the small blessings in life. Your journey thru the "valley of the shadow of death" has given us all the opportunity to rethink what is important - giving, sharing, loving, and gratitude. Because you are unselfish enough to open up your life to us, we are given a gift. I am so grateful, and I have been changed because of you! I believe God puts people in our paths for specific reasons. You were sent to teach us the simple art of appreciation. Thank you!
This is so true, and eloquently said. You inspire us, and will continue to even after you have passed through the portal into eternity. I do hope and pray that 'that day' is far off in the future, however!

RIP Sasha, best dog ever, pictured shortly before she died, Death either by euthanasia or natural causes is only the end of the animal inhabiting its body; I believe the spirit lives on.
Un petit bonjour de France où il pleut beaucoup! Je pense à vous et doublerai mes pensées dimanche! C'est à Blainville? Ma belle-fille va peut-être y aller en spectatrice! Bonne chance!! et n'oubliez plus vos médicaments!!
Yesterday I drove to the showground and was schoked to see so many horses..Over a 100 easily.
I tried to imagine myself with the 2 young 4 years old and my stomach crunch.
This is really not the place for me, I am really to sick for this..told myself. So I did 2 hours driving, was ok for amoment then plain crash for a couple of ours. I felt really sad, but there is nothing I can do about it..
So totay, I stay home and ride my youngest Dynamite and Shannon..
I'm sorry things didn't work out for the show. But in the long run, the horses got some trailering experience. You were wise enough to know that with a crowd of other horses there, and you not feeling so well, that you might risk giving the young ones a bad showing experience, so you left before that happened.
I hope that you enjoy the warmth and sunshine today, and that your horses give you some great rides.
When I was having radiation, I planned to go one day and then drive over 2 hours for a lesson, by myself. I had everything ready to go as soon as I was home from the treatment. Coming home, it just hit me that I couldn't do it, no energy. I was able to enjoy my horses in other ways, though, and I know you will too.
Have a good day.
Leena, you are amazing! I was just reading some of this and your positivity and grace really are inspirational. I'm humbled. My horses have blessed my life and I'm grateful that you have your beautiful horses to bless yours. And they have you! All my best.
Shannon, the grey mare is really something; yesterday we did some renvers and travers just at walk and I caught the moment when she undersood the renvers..I love riding this mare and hope someone will eventually. She has changed so much with her 5 months holliday; it has been a couple of years I am doing this, leaving a young horses in pasture rest for months and I appreciate the benefit.
It was the turn of Drakkar yesterday to be ridden; I will put some pictures later on.
Since I have not really work myself for a couple of months, I need to adress my legs position, my shoulders's too. Get also a remind of letting my arms looser.
I'll also try to find a way to make the tests effortless..I don't know how but I will.
I have a 3 days off since rain has taken on..That is welcome since I am sore all over the place...
