When I look back on this year it is pretty incredible to quantify the adventures that Annie and I have been on. I made this infographic to show our adventures.
We have been to 8 different states, driven a total of 7.5K miles, and travelled approximately 125 hours. At the start of the year we went on a fun field trip to the world equestrian center. After that I went to Lexington for Rolex and opted to bring Annie with rather than leave her at home.
A couple weekends later our bags were packed again to head south to Savannah. This was an amazing trip and actually knocked off 3 of the states this year! After that almost all of our states visited were due to a horse show or clinic. I was able to get to 5 horse trials this year. We were not able to complete our first due to greenness but I would say that an 80% completion rate is pretty good for a baby horses first year showing! If we include our trip to Tryon then it is actually more like 83% to get technical!
I went into this year with really low expectations for Annie. I was just hoping to get her out and about but we are finishing the year farther along than I ever could have hoped for. I can’t wait for even more adventures next year with the pretty red head mare!
What kinds of adventures have you all been on this year with your horses?
