it has rained and rained… and then rained some more.  the rings are a disaster. both horses made it through it though and posted good scores. Rhett got 2nd in his division.  How awesome is that for the big kid? _______________________________________________ Sat in a box for the freestyles on sat night and drank.  It poured on the poor riders.

Might have had a breakthrough with Ami today. We actually did well today and he didn’t have a meltdown.  Not even at the beginning.  And he went forward. _______________________________________________________ Saw a bumper sticker I loved. “it’s better to have loved and lost than to be married to a psycho for the rest of your life.” Amen, sister.

I wore chaps and spurs all day and didn’t sit on one horse. and I’m tired like I sat on 100. First I got there, and Loren the farrier was there.  We have a good relationship.  Pretty much anything I want to try, whether Loren thinks will work or not…  he does without complaint.  I told him I wanted to try a pad on Ami’s shoes for one cycle, to see if it made a difference (it didn’t, but more about that later).  So he did a pad.  Ami was good for shoe-ing.

I rode 3 sets, then came home early to work on paperwork.  Mostly I have been cleaning my house, and sleeping.  I still have a little hangover from the weekend.  I have to recover fast because Devon is next week.   I have to get on all my side projects the rest of the week. I could have sat on some today but like I said, I was tired and since it had rained all night, this was a good time for me to come home and try and actually, REST.  I don’t know why, but I always feel guilty sitting

Went and rode Ami. He was ok. Good for being off 5 days. We still have to have discussions. Discussions that would not be appropriate in a public setting. Discussions that are at the very least, PG-13. I hopped on a favorite mare. She had a lump on her stifle. Weird but totally sound. Just trotted a little and mostly walked. Came home. Went to lunch with Theresa. It was good to see her. Came home. Napped. ____________________________________________________________ I had a good Kentucky trip. Highlights: Got

fave picture

Crystal & Cookie Archive on September 16, 2008, 12:49 am


I love this picture.  Mostly ’cause I know exactly when and what I was saying in it. After Jim warms up, I give him his hat and jacket, go over his test (if he needs to… most of the time he doesn’t), and tell him to go be a rock star. This is that moment.  I am telling him to go be a rock star. I love it because it is 5 seconds in time.  But I love the way that Jim is looking at me, listening.  It really captures the moment and makes it special.  Especially since Rhett went
