I washed Speedy G and gave him a haircut on Saturday. He also got a big turn-out session where he galloped and bucked to his heart's content. I gave my tack a quick cleaning and bought a bag of potato chips to go with my sandwich and lemonade. That's all we need: clean horse, clean tack, lunch!
If you're curious, we're still riding USDF Introductory B & C. No shame in my book. I feel better about riding a lower level while we improve. What's the sense of showing at a higher level if we're just going to get low 50s? I'm happier riding Intro A & B and shooting for scores in the mid 60s. If we show well today, I might consider showing Training Level Test 1 in September. Wish us luck.
On a different topic ... big news for us! Speedy and Sydney are moving to a new home!!!!!! I am really excited about the move. Hubby (THANK YOU!!!!!) helped me move most of my stuff on Saturday afternoon. Both boys are still at their old home, but they should make the move on Tuesday or Wednesday. I know this seems like surprising news, but I have been quietly searching for a place that has like-minded riders. Dario and Mary do a wonderful job at Silverado, so this move had nothing to do with the quality of care they provided.
As we finish the move, I'll provide photos and details. In the meantime, just know that I LOVE our new barn and I can't wait to get there!
