Vacation is being planned already

Ok, I am very excited, I am all giddy and everything.  I have finally locked down a date to go to the Quarter Horse Congress in October.  Submitted my time off and everything!  Shopping extravaganza, I better start saving now!  I also sent a message to about 3 dozen people letting them know I will be down and I am already getting messages back saying they would like to visit with me and are marking it down.  Great deals, lots of horse people and the ability to see people I haven't seen in a long time.  In one case, it will have been over 10 years.  EEeeeeee, October now can't come soon enough lol!

My riding buddy #2 was very nice and was a good rider.  She used to play polo back in college and when she graduated and got married she became a teacher and stopped riding.  She hadn't been on a horse in over 4 years but it didn't look like it.  She had a great time riding the App around and really liked his little canter.  Of course since we were in the boring arena the App did have a nice slow collected canter, try that outside ha!  She is very excited to come ride more often and is going to come out next Thurs to ride again.  Yay, another good thing!

Also debating on whether to go to a fun show this weekend, I wasn't going to go but my July show may now be off the table so why not right?  The show is literally 5 mins away from my house and would only be $20 to go in 3 classes.  It is Sunday morning and I don't think I have anything going on, have to determine who I would bring and see if I can get them "ready" in time.  Not that it would be hard, it would just an equitation class and 2 pleasure classes but I do need tune them back up and such.  Decisions, decisions. Most likely be a last minute thing, go figure.

Also ecstatic over my new followers, I suddenly jumped up 3 followers almost overnight.  I have no idea how you found me, if it is a fun story feel free to share!

  1. Yay on the new riding buddy. Awesome!!

    I think you should go to the show since it's so close and cheap. :) If you get the time.

    Congrats on getting to go to the Quarter Horse congress. I can't wait to hear all about it.
