April means Spring.
For me April kicks off the Horse Show Season. Oh, I know that there are a few bigger shows in March, but historically ( or hysterically) they haven't been ones I've focused on very much.
I've owned Remy a whole year now, and it has been one heck of a year for us. I took him to only a few small shows last year, mainly to get him out, and he acted just like a green horse should act. We entered a class or two, and had some fun, but now he's four and has been at the Trainers for three months.
Our first show is in three weeks.
I'm looking forward to it!
Even though none of my Girl Friends are going to show with me this time.
It's just me and the Boy.
And the Trainer and a bunch of her new clients.
Lil Mama now has a full time job. She actually works for the same Auction House I work for- Michaan's Auctions in Alameda. I'm so happy that she likes it and I get to see her most days. But as usually happens with young families that work, there isn't much time for horse shows.
She insists that it will be fun for me, and I am choosing to believe her.
I'm a Big Girl~
I don't need a lot of people around me~
Mostly those statements are true.
I usually dress alone, saddle my own horse,
and have those alone moments before my class to focus.
It's not like I haven't done this all before.
I'm a little bit nervous! But please don't tell anyone! It's our little secret-ok?
So I'm going to hitch my portable home away from home up to the Big Truck and haul it there by myself.
And I'm going to do my best to show Remmy.
I'll keep you all up to date on my progress.
