    Default Anyone headed to Poplar this weekend??

    Just a quick Poplar roll call!! Anyone headed to the event this weekend? I'll be in the OT with my guy, Patrickswell Stonehaven. If you see a rather large chestnut with a white stripe, birdcatcher spots, and strange liver chestnut dappling starting at the hocks and going up the hindquarters you will have found us. We'll most likely be in the dressage ring doing our best impression of a giraffe on crack drowning in a rainstorm . Other than the dressage I'm really looking forward to a great weekend and hope everyone else has a great one as well!!

    I'm jealous of you, ID! You're going to rock it, no doubt. Wish I could be there too! Maybe sometime this season I'll make it to a show.

    Please give best wishes to my student, riding in the JBN Champs. Jordan Duffett on Rising to the Summit.

    Tall think 12 yr old on beautiful not quite liver chestnut with a flaxen mane and tail.

    I can't be there (announcing at Greenwood), and will be anxiously awaiting reports!

    Dina-yes, "rather" large may be a bit of an understatement. He sure makes the jumps look small though!!

    Courtney- We have missed you soooooooo much!! Chelsea will have Godiva at Chatt Hills, you should come watch!!

    Emirae- Good luck this weekend!!

    FlightCheck- I'll definitely keep an eye out for your student!!

    My trainer and her students will be there. I have exams at 4 pm Friday and 8 am Monday. I just could not pull it. Good luck to all those involved!

    Me and the Perchie Princess will be there- probably in TR.

    BabyRion is tagging along for the trip and schooling XC on Sun eve.

    Baby Rion is unimpressed.

    I will be at Southern 8ths doing the training 3-day, but a good friend of mine is in the Prelim Champs on her Sweedish Stallion, Accolade! He won the 4 year old YEH in 2009 and then was in England with her competing when she took a job over there. They are back now and anyone interested in breeding one of their own should check him out! You can't miss him. Very shiny chestnut,white stripe, and man parts!

    Eponacowgirl- Your girl is gorgeous!! Good luck with her this weekend!!

    EventingChase- I hope you have a great weekend at the Training 3 Day!! I'll keep an eye out for your friend and her stallion. I'm quite partial to chestnuts with white, but I may be biased

    Yep! We'll be in OBN, look for a cute-asa-bug little chestnut with four white socks and a blaze! Potentially seen in the company of a gigantor plain bay gelding.

    Excited for his second event ever, hoping we'll have another positive experience! Despite the heat... haha.

    Me, me, me!!

    But not to show. Yet, anyway!

    I'm bringing the Princess up to see Patty Merli and hopefully to get her a saddle. I'll just be there during the day, but am looking forward to watching everyone go!

    FlightCheck, tell Stuart hi for us, and Mike, and well everyone.

    Wish we were going this weekend. Have a mare qualified for the BNH Championships, but rider is off at horseshoing school....sigh. Can't wait for her to get back.
