Rain, Cold, and Horse Show fun

My first thought this morning when I woke up to the sound of pouring rain was "oh no the horses are out." Then it occurred to me that it is pouring and I have a show to go to. I reluctantly got up, got the horses in (who were pissed to be out in that yuck), fed, then proceeded to bathe Poppy. All while it poured. I checked the weather and radar showed no rain in Ocala. Good news. So off I went.

Arrived and no rain yet at the show. That lasted about 10 minutes. It rained and didn't stop all day. And got cold. It was MISERABLE! My misery showed in my riding. I had some misses but Poppy was great and tried hard. We stuck with the low adult jumpers today and was 3rd in both classes. But couldn't wait to get home and warm up and dry off! I'm pretty sure Poppy felt the same.


  1. The weather yesterday was so gross! Sorry you had to ride in it.

    1. It felt like January, not late April! Gotta love FL, 90 degrees Friday and 55 on Saturday!
