    Default I got picked for the George Morris Jumping Clinic!

    Sadly, not the one in Practical Horseman (don't know that I'd have the guts to do that) but the parody they do on the Hillbilly Farms site. Almost as cool, I think.

    Here's what they had to say about the pic I sent in -- hope you get as much of a giggle out of it as I did.

    I absolutely adore your blog. The wit and humor you write with is so relatable to me:-) The original post that the picture came from had me in tears....I was laughing so hard as I could totally picture myself in your shoes!

    And now you are connected with the Hillbilly Farms site?? It just keeps getting better and better!!!

    I LMAO'd thru his critique!!

    GM: She needs to look up at her next fence—over a jump is not the time to contemplate what went wrong at her farrier appointment.

    GM: The look on this horse's face tells me she would rather make the decisions than leave such things to her incompetent rider.

    Great pic and effort, thanks for the LOL!!

    LOVE LOVE LOVE Hillbilly Farms!
    Flip a coin. It's not what side lands that matters, but what side you were hoping for when the coin was still in the air.

    You call it boxed wine. I call it carboardeaux.

    Default Thanks, all!

    Glad it gave you giggles. Honestly, I'm about as proud of this as if I'd won a Grand Prix (not likely!)

    The funniest part of the whole thing, really, was how proud of herself my mare was! As we walked out of the ring with my trainer, she was STRUTTING, and kept nudging my trainer, like she was saying, "Didja see that? Didja? I jumped so darn big I jumped right outta my shoes!"

    @Comingback -- thank you so much! that was the sweetest thing to say, and you made my day! I hope I continue to keep you laughing.

    @kateh -- I know! Is that the best?? Totally makes coolers superfluous!
