Unfortunately an ugly bug had me down for the count the past couple of days. All of the creatures are doing well and between farmsitting, cabrewing, and a trail ride this weekend was packed to the gills before the plague hit! Thankfully I seem to be on the mend now and no worse for the wear.
All in all things have been going pretty well with Annie. She continues to improve on the flat – though we are far from consistent. I go back and forth pretty regularly on if I will continue to event her. We have so much fun over fences but trying to get through a dressage test with her – despite hours of work at home still makes me want to throw up. At some point it will kill all of the fun from eventing anyways and I really don’t want to get to that point. We aren’t there yet and will continue to give it a go but the idea of staying strictly in the jumper arena for competition purposes has crossed my mind. I guess I will know when I know if that time has come.
This weekend coming up is not only my birthday but also a fun schooling event at a local HJ venue. Here’s to hoping that the wheels stay on the bus as we haven’t been anywhere since Spring Bay in April.
As I prep for this schooling outing I have been thinking about what could be next on the calendar. Some unexpected potential travel plans have July a bit up in the air but some (unlikely) options are:
- 6/28-7/2 Brownland Farm Summer Show (local)
- 7/1 Schooling Show @ Poplar Place (5.5 hrs)
- 7/5-9 Mid-South Classic @ Brownland Farm (local)
- 7/8-9 Recognized HT @ Chatt Hills (4.5 hrs)
- 7/14-16 Recognized Champagne Run HT @ KHP (4 hrs)
- 7/22 Schooling Show @ Poplar Place (5.5 hrs)
I am honestly not sure if any of these things will be happening but it’s fun to think about. What do you guys have on the docket?
