in which i do arguably reckless things

I really had a lot of fun at our first HT at the end of September. Sure, our dressage was atrocious and I was kind of scared by some of the xc jumps. 

you. yes YOU. i don't like you.

But I LOVED galloping around, and I think Isabel did too. 


And despite my reservations about the height, and Isabel's conservative and slightly backed-off stadium round, we were clean and clear and surprisingly ok over everything. 

no big deal

And ever since we completed that HT on our dressage score, I've been itching to get back out there again. 
something about wearing a pinny feels very right

So I just mailed in my entry for another show at the end of this month. Same division (tho different name) but new venue. 

A more reasonable person may have waited until their dressage had improved... but I do what I want. And I kinda want to get a better measure for where we really are. Super excited!


  1. Yay! "I do what I want"! Love it. You will be amazing and have fun. That is what it is all about.

    1. Lol right? One day maybe I will have more competitive goals, but for now I just want to get out and have fun :)

  2. Having fun is a great thing! Enjoy:)

  3. For forth and SHOW!! Have fun :)

  4. Personally, I learn so much at shows that even if I don't feel 100% prepared and confident, it's SO good for my riding. Good luck and have fun!!

    1. Thanks! That's kinda my plan- just want to get some more miles in before winter hits :)
