What time does your SJ start, Stormy? You should totally have a friend/mom hold your cell phone so you can give an update right after you finish, haha.

1:30 Strange :) My FB status will be updated like... the second after if we don't get eliminated, which we wont :) surprisingly, I'm not that nervous anymore. I'm ready to just DO IT. I need to think about it as, if i SJ clear, I get to ride my XC, and that's what we love :)

and MIE, WE'RE WORKING ON IT! :P

Don't worry! I am sure you will both do great. You two are an awesome team. Good luck. Can't wait to hear the results!

When you get on, think about your favorite competitive rider. When you warm up, BECOME that person. Pretend you are that person and ride every jump/line/obstacle as that person would ride it. YOU ARE that person.....get it?

This type of visualization can be extremely helpful.

Dressage went AWESOME! ;) we had a spook because a horse got loose and was galloping past. I don't think it will e an issue and we won't be counted off because the judge had us wait. Now for stadium in an hour!!! Woooo!
