Almost caught up…

Two long days spent between the stable and my desk will get me caught up and then back to San Diego early Friday am.

The week in San Diego was very busy.  Horses needed to be shod, export papers needed to be started and FEI passports needed to be updated with vaccinations for spring.  And Lindsey got sick.  Thank goodness Kim was there to help out with all the details.  Lindsey’s feeling better now and everything got done.

Next week is going to be very busy.  One full week of work with Shannon before the Burbank CDI.

Back to the work at my desk….

With Vickie headed home for the week I had good intentions of cleaning up a few things with the horses so that she could see big improvements. Unfortunately, life had other plans and I ended up sick on Monday afternoon with either a stomach bug or food poisoning….ugh! Thank goodness for Kim, Megan, Emma and Ava for taking such great care of the horses while I was home in bed. Thanks girls!!

I headed back to the barn today still a bit green and made it through the day on Gatorade and pretzels from Shannon’s mom, Margaret.  Kim rode in the morning and she had an amazing ride. Kim and Walker have made such big improvements in their time down here….They look great!! I had a lesson with Shannon on Lance and put light rides on the others. Thankfully it is very warm here today so they were all happy to have a bit of a lighter day in the heat. Hopefully, I will feel up to full work tomorrow.  I’m feeling the pressure to fit in as much as possible in our last weeks in California.

Vickie is back on Friday and it looks like the weather will stay nice for her return!
