This weekend was a mixed bag of emotions. There were 2 exams done. One okay and one was a total downer. I am happy to say that for now it appears that Annie is fine. The vet will be coming back out to evaluate her under tack but it seems as though this is a training issue not lameness.
Unfortunately this means that the PPE that I had done on an adorable BWP filly this weekend did not go so swimmingly.
I went to Aiken fully anticipating to be bringing home a new jumper prospect. I found something bred well, that moved well, and free jumped beautifully as well. I thought that I was going to a well respected breeder and that I would be treated as such but much to my disappointment that was not the case. I have never been so insulted by the seller of a horse. I will post about this in more detail but there is a new breeder on the top of my toxic waste list…
On the bright side because I drove through Atlanta on this adventure I was able to make last minute dinner plans with Lauren and Eric. Blogger friendships for the win. I can’t wait to meet up with Lauren and Gus next season at horse shows and hopefully more clinics! Annie got a flat ride from a barn pal on Saturday and I love getting reports that while green she was good and willing. Feels pretty good to have a (mostly) solid citizen baby horse. 2 days gone and Annie’s stupid scratches reared it’s ugly head again. Thankfully the horses just switched from night turnout so hopefully now that she wont be standing in the morning dew we will be able to nip this in the bud. Last but not least Annie and I had our final cross country school before Feather Creek. She was a BEAST. I still want to play around with our tack set up as I am not the happiest with what we are currently going around in. I cannot wait to get there but have to say I am pretty bummed that Amanda and Henny won’t be able to come anymore. I do get the next best thing as Bobby is still going to be there which means trunk tent city is still on and there will surely still be fun cross country walks! Steph how far is Feather Creek from you??
Did you all have exciting weekends?
