    And while it is a 35 minute drive, you are welcome to stay with us for Fair Hill (or Plantation, which is less than 20 minutes).
    OTTBs rule, but spots are good too!

    it depends on how the winter goes... but it could be a real possibility. I guess I should get out and XC school, huh?

    scubed, I might take you up on that offer for Plantation or FHI in the fall, if it's still available then! (And can I tell you how I jealous I am that you live in that area, that is my dream location! Crossing my fingers to get there when SO graduates from med school in 2014...)

    Me! Me! If I can scrape together the funds, I'll be there with pony in tow. If no $$$, then I'll just have to hope Acme invites me along for the party (hint). Would love to meet some of you!

    Our first realistic outing of the year is early May, but it sure is nice to at least hear SOMEBODY talk about show season. Today was only the first day it felt like winter (brrr!) but I'm thoroughly sick of it already. You lucky souls who live within reach of moderate climates--keep talking! At least the days are getting longer . . .

    I lived in Michigan for 11 years, DW. And the only time I ever competed before May was when I trailered all the way to Longleaf (this was before the Horse Park), through snowstorms and ice. My horse and I had been conditioning in the snow, and doing everything else indoors.

    I'd like to go again this year. Can anyone speak to the prelim course? I've done training and novice there the last two years as my first outing, then I move back up at Morven. We had a very solid year at prelim last year and it would feel like a waste to go all the way down there for training when my guy would just laugh at it like he did last year.

    I'll be there as usual volunteering-hopefully with the hospitality cart and watching my friends gallop around the course! I am up for a get together!

    I did something terribly impulsive last night (maybe stomach bug induced?) and got a hotel room. Figured it was better to get a hotel room now and cancel if I decide not to go rather than wait and decide, and have to stay 40 miles away.

    I would offer to share, but it would be cozy...you'd have to be comfortable sharing a king size bed with a stranger and her ridiculous bed hog of a dog.

    Hey Lindsay, I think the prelim is fair for early season and I can't imagine that you'd have any trouble with it. I agree about not wanting to travel so far for a laughing horse.

    Do you have any specifics? I honestly don't think I even glanced at the prelim last year, except for the main water. It would mostly be for my sake; I tend to ride a bit conservatively in my first few outings of the year, so I don't want anything maxed out.

    I walked it last year and though it was quite straightforward. Plus the terrain is so much nicer/easier than what we have up here. I don't recall anything that gave me pause. Wish my memory had more specifics....

    I'll likely be there to watch. Not sure if I'll come the whole weekend or just a day. But I'd love to get together if anyone is game.
    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.

    Default Mar 22-24 Southern Pines II

    Figured I'd ask on here...we're heading to S. Pines II with a horse in the Advanced and one in the Training, but will be headed north and home at the end of the weekend. I'm looking for paddocks/some sort of way to house 2 polo ponies and our jumper that weekend in the Southern Pines vicinity. Any leads? TIA
