Several of the ladies hauled in old VHS tapes from jumping shows dating back to the 1980s - hysterically funny, and at a times, a little bittersweet. Suzy had even put together a video montage in honor of Honor Bound, the equine friend we lost a few weeks ago.
The real fun started with the traditional I-Want-THAT! gift exchange. You know the one: everyone gets a number, you pick a gift from the pile, or you steal something cool from someone else. I will admit that I love to steal and don't care one bit about what I get to take home. It's the stealing that makes it so much fun.
I "stole" a cool Dover gift certificate and then later a super cute horseshoe necklace from my pal, Cha Ching's mom, who later worked out a deal with her niece to steal it back from me. Karma, right?
It was a really fun party! It was also fun to get to visit with everyone without helmets, breeches, and a horse tugging your arm off. It's always surprising how everyone cleans up so nicely!
