Congratulations to Shannon on her win in the Grand Prix Special at the Del Mar Show Park CDI yesterday on Odyssey. Odie, through no fault of his own, is just now learning how to be a super star Grand Prix horse this year. Shannon’s wonderful feel and expert skills are leading Odyssey down centre line and this weekend they had 2 successful GP tests. Odie has amazing piaffe and passage work and Shannon’s magic touch maximizes each stride. Lovely to watch and learn from each day! Next show for this pair is the Burbank CDI end of March.
Lindsey and I spent the weekend practising our positive thinking skills and found all sorts of benefits for not showing our horses. Well…we weren’t very tired at the end of each day, we definitely had cleaner clothes and hands, we got to watch a couple of classes at the show and we got to visit with Barb and Curtis and Bud and Gayle and Les and Ally and nicest of all, visiting with Braydon two days in a row…see…lotsa good things happened this weekend!
Lance and Fred still have swollen hind legs and Fred is now swollen in the throat latch as well. William’s leg swelling has all but disappeared and he’s feeling much better. Dr. Paul is coming today and will have another look at the three of them.
The weather is beautiful here and at home. What a difference a week can make!
Looking forward to being home for a couple weeks…already missing my horses here…
