I'll be in Tehachapi which is a little over an hour away. I ride at 7:58 a.m. so I have to leave the house pretty darn early. Poor Speedy's not going to know what hit him!
I am a bit anxious about the early ride time since it will be pretty cool in Tehachapi. Speedy is normally very well behaved at this venue, but the cool morning air might give him some extra energy, hence the don't get hurt goal.
This is a CDS show, but I already have my qualifying scores for September's Regional Adult Amateur Competition (RAAC) so I don't feel any pressure to earn a certain score. It's not a USDF show so I can't earn any scores toward my USDF Riding Performance Award. Even though I don't need them, I still want to earn scores over 60% since my mind is now on doing well at RAAC.
Wish us well, and I'll let you know how we do.
