I think all this rain has been wrecking havoc on the farmers, unfortunately.
Another one bites the dust - GVPC Spring Event is now canceled as well. I did send in my entry for the CT at Lehman's, but now I'm scrambling to figure out another event to do (that won't be canceled!) maybe Lost Hounds?
If you go to Lost Hounds and want to make a quick stop in Buffalo to pick me up, I'll be your own personal groom for free
I'll try to stop by, Lehman's is about 8 minutes from my house If you see a nerdy, preteen looking person looking lost and confused, that's probably me
Big Grey - go to the GVRDC website when we closer to the 5th so you can see when the dressage and the stadium are running. Dressage is first usually and if you watch several rides, it will give you an idea of a dressage test pattern. Enjoy!
Back in my day, we didn't have as many warning labels because people weren't so dang stupid!
I wanted to update the GVRDC CT - we placed 2nd finishing on our dressage score of 39. We warmed up sooo nicely, but then she was tense and behind the leg in the ring - oh well! She jumped everything, although wasn't impressed with the height at all. My first thought was to stick around and do the Novice course (for $10 you could do another course) but I was tired, she was tired, it was hot, and I really don't need to practice jumping the mare over a course a few inches higher, I know she can jump . The day before we schooling on xc at GVH, and she was a little silly but over all a good girl.
crickett - I'm pretty sure her husband with the RIDONKULOUS camera got the pics of her, I spot him easily with his sweet camera, he looks like a pro! J, you should totally get him to put his shots on a website and sell them.. and then have him give you the money to pay for clinics, schoolings, and events.
Congrats on second place with your fine little mare, can't wait to see you guys out again! We can actually talk this time! =P
It was my DH who took those pics.... He will absolutely love that you said that!! I think he would *love* it if someone wanted to buy his photos, and it might encourage him to buy yet another camera body or lense...
I *think* I saw the lady from Alpha and Omega Photography there -
I'm almost positive there was someone there shooting, I just don't know who, sorry! I would guess to just check GVRDC's website or the usual suspect's websites. Since I'm new to eventing, I'm not sure who they are!
Jannah, can your DH hang out with my boyfriend and teach him to take better pictures..? Better yet.. have your DH take pictures of Jake and I and I WILL buy the photos from him! =P
ETA: No sign of them on Alpha Omega (at least not yet, anyway)
Nothing on the alpha omega site, unfortunately. I also am new, and don't know who the "usual suspects" would be. lol. Seriously, if your hubby had gotten any of us, I probably would have purchased some. :-) Great ride!
