Winter Equestrian Festival, 2/11/2007
I would like to acknowledge the enormous help given to me thus far during WEF by my trainers and those who train and own the horses I have been catch riding during the circuit. Every day here begins quite early, around 6:00am, and ends approximately twelve to thirteen hours later.
Although most people would consider the long days work, the requirements of the day are a comfortable spot and hardly seem like a requirement or a chore. Each day is a gift where I am fortunate to learn a great deal about horses and all they do require. For this, I'm grateful.
Today, was my second show in the Small Junior Hunters, ages 16-17, on EL Raymond, a beautiful chestnut gelding. We had a breakthrough day full of great learning experiences. We seem to be getting better and better each time out and I was really proud of him today.
I'll be in touch real soon with another update.
