It's my first show of the season and my new ride's first show ever. We'll be in the open BN (since I sadly can't ride in the rider division with the new rules...). Hopefully we'll get around without too many green moments! Looking forward to having a fun weekend! My trainer will be there too with her loooovely Windfall 5 yo doing his first Training.
God bless River Glen's showers...a good place to warm up if you're wet and chilled. Bundle up and trundle back over to the barns or your camp site in a MUCH better mood than before. Yep...have done that exact thing.
Looks like they're going to have a good crowd. We'll be there with a couple of trailers set up next to Margaret, the tack lady. Everyone drive safely. If you're coming south from KY on I-75 you may run into a long delay for construction about an hour north of Knoxville.
I'll be there with two at Novice - Po obviously, and also my Big Horse the Awesome Mr Z. Expect to see small english lady flying around very very fast and shouting Wheeeeeeee ! over most everything.
Let me know if anyone needs saddles to play with this weekend - I can bring a few. Have a bunch of Custom dressage, new and used, Custom jumping including the monoflap, the Phillip Dutton RTF wise-air, bunches of used Albions etc. Just let me know.
Everyone should try the Wise-Air saddle (jumping). I am a total convert and now proselytize about it constantly.
Also, keep an eye out for Hevonen and my new guy, since I think he is adorable and am interested to hear multiple reports (Hevonen is the best of the many young riders I have had horses with about keeping me updated on how he is doing, but still more news is more fun)
