Birthday Girl

img_5399.jpegFive years ago yesterday a baby ginger came into the world. Almost two years ago (in July) while casually err aggressively stalking horses online on my honeymoon I came across an ad for a gangly coming 3 year old filly. I found her, pre purchased her, and bought her off about 60 seconds of video.  I still can’t believe just how lucky I got. Anyone that has gotten one of the track can attest to the leap of faith it can be.

I refer to her as the dragon sometimes (how to dressage your dragon might be a new thing) but in all seriousness she is a little horse with a lot of opinions and even more heart. I am not sure there is a sweeter horse on the ground and when I ask she gives her all out on course. I know that even if we can’t tackle the dressage aspect of eventing we will tear it up in the jumper ring for years to come. LCP_4456We have had a full 2 years and I hope that this year will be even better than the last. Regardless of what we end up doing I am lucky to have such a creature in  my life. Happy Birthday Nanners!
