The past two days have been a whirlwind of blowing and going! Add to that some life altering changes (more on those later) and you have one tired cowgirl. After all the rain we’ve had it has just been ridiculously muddy. And frankly I am tired of not getting rides in on my horses. So I decided that come hell or high water, I would find an indoor /covered arena to ride in and was successful both yesterday and today. But that means loading up horses and driving someplace. So I have managed to get a lot less done than I would have liked. I had to go ride because I am entered in a barrel race this weekend. And next weekend. I’m also running short on my days in Texas, so I need to get as many rides in on my client horses as possible- which means riding before we go get exhibitions at the barrel races. I also made the brave decision that I would enter my new horse for his first run next weekend. If that goes well, I’ll late enter him and make two more runs the same time I run Gumpers. I honestly tried to be on top it this weekend and have posts ready to go, but frankly between the recurring cold and all the running around, I just didn’t get it done. Please forgive me. If I have time, and internet access this weekend I’ll update everyone on the barrel race!
Speaking of barrel races- I’m extra excited about this weekend because I’m going to get to see my college room-mate from my Freshman year. I haven’t seen her since 2003, I think, and I can’t wait to catch up. She’d just had their baby girl about 2 weeks prior to me seeing her and I don’t even recall how old her little boy is. Should be a good weekend full of catching up and riding!
Have fun and be safe, everyone!
