Show Time!

We are heading to Edinburgh tonight!  My lovely trainer / daughter will ride Riva in Intro C at 8:54 am and I am showing her in Intro B at 11:18.  Good spacing, I think.  I have looked up times for two fellows bloggers and hope to watch at least their stadium jumping and meet them in person!

I am not stressed about showing - even though this will only be our third show.  I showed Riva in April at Edinburgh for the first time and she was great.  We tried to show in May at Come Again Farms, but that was in the midst of dealing with her club foot rehabbing and we ended up just schooling.  Of course - she lost a back shoe last night and no time for us to get that put back on before we leave this evening.  My wonderful husband is going to pull the other rear before we put her on the trailer to leave...and we will hope for the best!

It was been a horribly stressful week at work for me...I am ready to ride my fav girl, spend some time with my family, eat some Mexican tonight (ok, I really only care about the Marguarita) and enjoy.

Marguarita? Mmmmmmmm.........

Good luck at the show! Lucky it was only a hind shoe she pulled, she should be fine.
