Here are some pics of the barn I’ve taken.
I’m not to terribly worried about the show on Monday. I joked with my instructor on Wednesday that me and Pinecone are just “happy to be invited to the dance!” I haven’t been riding as much as I’d like with my wedding coming up in two weeks it seems there are a million other things that need to be done. Hopefully this weekend I’ll get to the barn and get my tack and horse cleaned up and maybe fit in some riding time too. Like I said I’m not worried. I am doing some walk tests that my instructor came up with as well as a walk trot test, and Intro A & B. Intro B always seems to be our best test for some reason. I just wish we were doing Prix Caprilli this year. Pinecone LOVES cavaletti! I’ve learned that getting stressed out and upset at shows doesn’t do a bit of good. If we do well…then that’s awesome. If we fail miserably…better luck next time. I often joke that piney prefers green and pink ribbons. Green since that’s his color and pink because it’s mine!
I just don't get to serious about dressage as some people do. I love my horse and I have fun with him. He makes me incredibly happy. if we never get past Intro level, i honestly don't care. He is my horse of a lifetime and I'm so happy i found him. He thinks he is perfect all of the time and he tries his little heart out for me. He's come a long way since I brought him home and he learns something new every single ride. I am so proud of my little monster even if he will never be a grand prix level dressage horse haha!
