This weekend my mom and I went to the first of two horse shows at Old Salem Farm in North Salem, New York. Although several classes were cancelled due to the inclement weather, I still showed from Thursday to Sunday. I was fortunate to catch ride several horses this weekend, something that I appreciate immensely as well as enjoy doing. Every horse is different and presents a new and exciting challenge. I love it!
I'm glad to report that Whimsey crossed another hurdle this past weekend; he was lunged before a class. However, keeping his struggle of the past twenty months in mind, he showed in only one class at the show. Again, I am happy to report he felt and behaved more like the horse I rode in 2004! I know how lucky I am to have another chance to show him again.
Since 1999, I've gone to a horse show with my mom on Mother's Day. I'm blessed to have her love and support. Thanks, mom!
