No, my good friend and her fancy dressage horse, are coming to ST. Louis for the regionals, and have a really good chance to win at third level. So I don't want to miss it. They are even doing the dancing to music, and have worked so hard. The horse was on deaths door about 4 months ago, had what they thought was a seizure or a brain injury.
Now it is going full steam ahead. The horse was even on the cover of some dressage magazine with the cover story about her.
I will be at the National Drive in the spring come he!! Or High water, as my mother would say.
Have fun at the auction! If there is a pair of that Eastern European kind of harness, pick it up for me!! I still have not figured out how to get my hands on one.
Sorry you won't be at the drive.....Marlene is having a party at her new place in Versailles on the night of the "chili dump".
Cat, the spring drive info is on the National Drive website. Hopefully there will be more people next year.... This year, it seemed like about 7 of us! The entire place was quiet, where as the fall ND last year had Paso Fino Worlds, Dressage regionals, and a Rocky Mountain show ALL at the same time. Usually, there are Saddlebreds there, too.
Nothing but junk at the auction. There was one cart thet looked interesting, but I didnt like the shafts. They came out from the cross bar straight and were too wide at the tips. If my job wasn't in constant limbo, I might have bought it.
There also was one harness I liked and it sold for $90. I thought about some of you on the HF but I didn't want to buy anything without a commitment that someone was going to buy it.
