I raised $210 in pledges and was the highest pledge earner. For this they gave me this HUGE gift basket full of all sorts of horsie goodies.
I was riding with Jodie, my barn buddie, and Nancy one of Jodie's students. Jodie was riding Nordic a 3 year old Halflinger, and Nancy was on Tucker another Haflinger. My daughter was to ride with us too but because Bonnie hurt herself there wasn't another horse she felt comfortable riding. I suggested I'd give up Rosie to her and she said NO WAY! That makes me laugh because of the two Rosie is the least excitable.
The day was perfect, starting out in a real sand arena warming up. Jodie paid me a great compliment after watching me go around a couple of times. "Jeni there's a show tomorrow let's go you are ready!" That made me feel so good, but I want more arena work as I don't know the tests.
I forgot my camera so I got very few pictures. I wasn't all that comfortable taking pictures on horse back with my iPhone but I got a few. This one of Jodie laying on Nordic's neck tying his PINK fly mask thing back on after it slipped over his eyes.
View from Rosie's back:
Nothing but smiles:
All in all great ride except Rosie decided that a 1 foot step down into a mucky ditch and up a hill was too much to. This was at the end of the ride, we were about 15 minutes walk from the trailers. Jodie and I fought with this horse for about 4o minutes there just was no going over. Unbelievable considering she walked through a river twice without batting an eye.
