Horse Show Weekend

The day before a horse show is always hectic.  After work I will have the mad dash to get home, ride, hook up the trailer, clean all my tack, load trailer with all my stuff, clean the golf cart, etc.  It is supposed to be in the 30s tonight so I really don't want to bathe Poppy in the morning.  I might just try to towel off her stains and wash her tail.  I didn't get a stall at the show.  I plan to just trailer her in since it is close and then she will get to come home and relax.  It also saves a large amount of money (stalls are $200 per week not including shavings which would run about $50).  I have to drive home anyway each day so I'm not spending anymore on fuel by taking her back and forth.

I hacked Poppy last  night and jumped a couple small jumps.  I'm hoping to get home earlier today and jump a little bigger.  Since I haven't been able to do much jumping I plan to do 2 training classes Friday.  1m and 1.10m

If I have a chance I will try to update about the show over the weekend.

As promised here is the picture of Poppy in her sleazy.  I think she looks like the hamburgler although a friend said a ninja.


  1. Ninja hamburgler! Good luck this weekend.

  2. Poppy looks like a ninja to me! Though hamburgler is pretty good too. Good luck!

  3. Good luck! Poppy looks adorable as a ninja hamburgler. :)

  4. Im not sure what a hamburgler is but she definitely looks ninja :-)
