Today, I went to Hunter Farms in Princeton, NJ, to catch ride some horses from Beacon Hill in the Junior Hunters. My mom and I drove through the beautiful and immaculate Princeton University campus before arriving at the show. After getting the horses ready, we warmed up in the indoor to prepare for the first class. For some of the horses, it was their first show since Florida and they seemed to be a little bit "out of the groove". After the second round, we got some of the "kinks" worked out. All in all, it was a good day and the young horses deserve extra credit for being such good boys. Following the ride home, I was hard-pressed to begin my studying as soon as possible. Tomorrow, there will be a few tests to take at school before returning to the show again in the afternoon.
