...About riding, the weather, how fat I feel and such that is. Or maybe the WEATHER is bipolar and it seriously effects my productivity.
After my RAH RAH post about getting back on my horse, I had a meltdown and decided I was no longer going to ride...pretty much ever (see depressing FB status on July 25). And I changed my mind again. And again again. And now after watching the BAMFs in the Olympics, I decided I was going to the next one in 2016. And then it got hot again.
My poor pony.
Luckily I HAVE decided that I'm not going to stop riding for good, and once I get a solid, oh SIX paychecks under my belt and my finances taken care of, I will "start" showing again in September.
I say "start" because really that is the end of the season for MO, but there are a few nice jumper and CT shows nearby that are reasonably cheap that would be fun to do. Chesterfield has an amazing Jumper show at Ridgefield that I am absolutely going to do on the 22nd of Sept. I MUST.
I WANT TO WIN A BLUE NECK RIBBON SO BAD.
In the meantime, with the new jobs, classes beginning (hell weeks in CoMo) for students and fall settling in, I hope (crosses fingers jobs and laziness don't prevail) that I can do one jump sesh a week, one hack and one dressage school. I feel like I can do 3 rides a week. Not hard.
Especially once the weather settles its crazy ass down and gets back to normal temperatures I feel I will be wildly successful.
I gave my dressage saddle to Jackie to borrow till she gets her own so we shall dressage in jump tack! RAH! I can't believe I SHOWED eventing in jump tack for years. I only aquired a dressage saddle about 5 years ago.
Anyways, here is a sweet picture of all the ribbons I've won with the ponyface in Eventing and dressage. Didn't realize how many!
