I just finished my exam and all that stands between me and the first show of the season tomorrow is a lesson on my favorite horse at the barn. And a 2 hour car ride to our captain’s house for the night. I cannot wait!!! At our meeting last night when our coach went over show etiquette and basic show information she asked who was nervous and pretty much everyone said they were when she asked them, but I am just excited. When I’m shaking before the show tomorrow, its not because I’m nervous. I’m just super excited. I wasn’t able to show last semester so the last time I showed was last December. I went with the team to watch semi-finals and Nationals and have been ready to show since then. I worked at the barn and rode all summer and have basically been working my butt off and I can not wait for tomorrow!!! Can you tell I’m a little excited!?!
Meet the newest horse at the barn! He’s a 5 month old colt. And his name is Bear!!! I almost died when I heard what they were naming him!!
I showed my mom this picture earlier today and when I told her his name was Bear she got all excited and said “awww! Like Meryl and Maks!” I love that my mom relates everything to Maksyl even when we’re not talking about them!!!
I had a great Friday! I rode 3 completely different horses and fed both barns. I then went home had a nice relaxing shower. I am now watching Gilmore Girls and will be going to bed early!
You know you’re around horses too much when your hands still smell like horses after you take a shower and wash them after going to the bathroom. I have no idea how this is possible when I washed my face, used both shampoo and conditioner and body wash.
Alex tells it how it is. Whitney was not pleased by the praise Val and Jenna got! Haters gonna hate.
