Hello to everyone...
So, with packing, shipping horses and getting home after being gone for 8 weeks, the blog just did not get done!
Where to start....our last event at Full Gallop had its shares of ups and downs. Courtney Olmstead came in on Saturday to help me out as our super help for Aiken, Summer Cogan, had a birtheday party for her recently turned 5 year old Jersey. Courtney was great help and after Saturday, Tag lead the OI, and Connie and Hope were both tied for 5th and Caylee was, I think, 9th in her division. More jumping followed on Sunday and Tag had some really good moments and then, well, all I can say is one very misunderstood moment at the sunken road where I popped off! Oh, the humbling sport we do!
Connie and Hope came in to brighten my day as they both jumped well in show jumping and cross country with Hope just adding a rail and Connie won and Hope got her first placing, a 7th in her second novice. Not too shabby.
Caylee, aka Cedilah Dancer, had a mysterious swelling on her leg so we did not take the chance to run her but after more tests she was determined to be fine, but better safe than sorry.
Some of the horses then shipped home on Monday with Neal coming down Tuesday morning and helping me take the rest of them and me and Peyton home on Wednesday.
Our new wonderful groom Liz Hammond joined us at home and has helped the settling in process and we are now back and for the most part caught up.
It is super to be home and the weather has been beautiful and the daffodils are coming out.
We hope to see you soon as we head to Area II events, as always feel free to stop by and say hello.
