From Endurance to Dressage
It's Just Money and Time
I put these on last night. I am fairly certain they won't make it through the day, but I am going to give it a chance. I bought them in extra large since the larges I had seemed too small. This is a different brand though and these seem too big. Since they probably won't last, it's no big deal!
And not that this has anything to do with wasting money, but I do live in California which tends to be pretty expensive. Here's why:
It was actually a bit cooler by the time I thought to take a screen shot. I think our high was actually 87℉. It was fairly humid as well.
When a recent package didn't arrive on time, I checked on the tracking status and saw that it was being delayed due to extreme weather conditions. What?!?!?! It is so hard to image what the rest of the country is going through when you live here. We just can't picture winter in March. We can barely picture it in February.
My pal Mia just posted pictures of her mare in her new pasture. Our living experiences as horse owners sure vary depending on where you live. Sorry to hi-jack your photo, Mia!
Is your winter like mine, or do you live near Mia?

It's too bad snow can't be hauled across the country because we need LOTS of it. :0)

Our winter has been very mild in Oregon. Hardly any snow and not as much run either. I'm afraid the summer will be nasty but enjoying mid 60's and sunshine!

My mom lives in Cave Junction and has said much the same thing. I think the west coast was (unfortunately) spared from old man winter's wrath. :0)

About the Writer and Rider
I am a lifelong rider.
I began endurance riding in 1996 where I ultimately completed five, one-day 100 mile races, the 200-mile Death Valley Encounter, and numerous other 50, 65, and 75 mile races. I began showing dressage in 2010.
Welcome to my dressage journey.
