TGIF….

After another hot and humid day, the horses are sure glad it’s Friday and there’s only one more day to go in Blainville. We can’t believe that we are almost at the end of our journey -it has gone so quickly.

Lance proved that he is capable of digging in even when it’s hot and he’s tired. He agreed with us that ones were not required for Intermediare I this morning and also decided that he didn’t want to be left out of the awards ceremony again today. He made a couple of green I1 horse bobbles but ended up 8th with a 64.2%. Not bad for his third I1 test!!  We are looking forward to our freestyle under the lights tomorrow night.

William officially decided that he is ready to go home. He tried really hard to be a good boy but the heat and lack of turnout made him a little fiesty for the day. He ended up with a 71.6 and 4th place. Great comments from the judges who think he has lots of potential as a FEI horse….we think so too!!

Tomorrow is the last day of the show, our only ride is Lance’s freestyle in the evening. We have to pick Ivars up at the airport in the afternoon and will get everything packed up to head out early on Sunday morning.

Mom (Barb) took some great pictures today, she’s definitely getting the hang of Vickie’s fancy camera. Hope you enjoy them!

Thanks to Linds for her blogging tonight dispite having major brain fatique!  She has had a great 2 weeks, three horses, back to back shows.  Tomorrow will be bitter sweet, the end of a wonderful 6 weeks of showing and working in Toronto but we are all looking forward to being home… uping the training on the boys and Fred and getting back to all our horses at home!  Vickie
