So last night I had a GREAT lesson. Rode really well and horse went really well, everything fell into place. It was super hot and sticky out, but I had a great evening so it didn't matter. Walked back into the barn feeling good (albeit really sweaty!) only to find that all my barn friends had set up a surprise bridal shower for me! (I'm getting married in 10 days.) It was such a great night, I feel so lucky to be at a great hunter show barn but also surrounded by such great friends and fellow horsewomen.
Plus, only riding friends would host an elegant dinner-with-wine party for you in a tack room when everyone attending is sweaty and horsey! I love my life. Just had to share!
That's fun! You're so lucky to have such great barn buddies. I just attened a 30th bday bash for an old barn friend of mine - we've known each other since we were 8 years old and will always be friends no matter where life takes us. Our husbands laugh at us because every time we get together we talk nonstop "horse"! Congrats on the upcoming wedding!
