Horse Show Week!!

This week kicks off 3 weeks of the Winter Series Circuit.  Poppy and I will be at all 3 and our first day of showing is Friday.  I am so excited.  It is one of my favorite series as it is home turf and showing 3 weeks in a row gets you in a good rhythm (or so we hope).

We had a nice jump school over the weekend.  My plan is to hack her as much as I can this week and get one more jump school in.  The temperatures are supposed to drop again so I anticipate a frisky horse.  This means it is even more important to keep her ridden and loose.

I finally body clipped Poppy.  I have to say that I can't think of anything that I dislike more than body clipping.  My back is still killing me.  She is so well behaved about it all but for some reason I have grown to detest it.

Finished product.  Can you tell she was over it too?  This was day 2.  We were both done with it day 1 so I left the little touch ups and hard to reach spots for day 2.


  1. I want to come watch! I'll start driving now haha!

    I am sure that you guys will do awesome!

    Glad you ladies made it through the clipping :)

  2. Are you coming to HITS?? We have a couple girls from the barn going so I'd be there! Good luck!

    1. I haven't decided yet. It's not my favorite show plus with last year's outbreak I am not excited to go. If I do it will be Feb/march
