Lance and Lindsey, Intermediare One, 62%, great ride, 10th place. First show done and now back to training and get ready for Burbank CDI at the end of February. This was a great way to start our show season. The show was close to home (3 hours away), we had lots of help from family (thanks Barb, Curtis, Archie, Ali and Baby Brayden!). Although William and Fred didn’t get to compete, they worked well and they’ll get a turn to come down center line next show.
We left Thermal about noon and arrived at Arroyo before sundown. It was good to unload the horses and unpack the trailer in daylight. We’re still getting used to no twilight and planning our day around early sunsets! Now to deal with mounds of laundry here at the coach and at the stable…on the list for today…
We’ll work Alex this morning and then Kim and Walker will have a lesson. Maybe, if the paddocks have dried out, they’ll all be able to get some turnout in the afternoon???!!!
I’m headed back to Alberta tomorrow and will be back in Del Mar on Friday. Sooooo looking forward to seeing my family!!! A couple of days at home will let me tackle the stacks of stuff that have grown on my desk for the last month and pat all the ponies we had to leave behind. It’ll be a couple of very full days at home, lots of lessons, lots of catching up and lots of hanging out with kids and hubby!
Gonna be quiet day…hope the sun shines!
