We have been working very hard since my return :)! Lindsey did such a good job for the 10 days I was gone and the horses all looked great when I got back…time to add the next level of work. Robert Dover (our new team coach) will be in Calgary Dec 2/3 and Linds and Lance will ride with him both days. I hope the weather holds and the roads are bare. Keeping our fingers crossed for non-extreme weather!
Getting all the final details lined up for our trip to California. Dr. Herbers will be here early December to update all the FEI passports, vaccinate, Coggins tests and export papers. The truck is booked to leave here on January 13 and arrive at Shannon and Steffan’s in San Diego late January 14. (Ivars and I will take the coach to Escondido early January and then fly home.) Lindsey and Peter will drive the 4 horse (full of hay) south and plan to be there to unload the horses on the 14th. (The coach will be there for them when they arrive.) I’ll be home for a week and then fly back to San Diego on the 20th. Kim and Ed and the girls will be down by the end of January. Our first CDI is Feb 12/14 in Thermal. Everyone is ready. We are very thankful for the chance to train, work and show in San Diego and will work hard to take advantage of this tremendous opportunity. We’re pumped.
The sun is coming up and horses need to be fed…off to the stable…I love my job.
