Wow..all these bonfires and parties sound like fun.
Happy belated birthday Happy Place!
CaCowgirl...I'm a lightweight too. I can't even order a drink with dinner when I go out because I can't taste my food after one drink. LOL
Rick...there are lots of Buckcherry songs that are appropriate for various situations. None seemed to fit today..thank goodness.
We had a blast today! It was only 30 degrees when we loaded up the horses but it warmed up quickly. I was a little worried (what? Me worry about something????) because I had only trailered Isabella one other time and it was over a year ago. She started pawing immediately but stopped as soon as the last horse was loaded and then she calmed down. Being a polo pony, she has a lot of trailer miles under her belt so maybe she was just excited.
Having hubby with me was fun! He and Scuffy won 5th place in novice horse. It was his horse's first time ever doing a judged trail ride. Isabella and I didn't place. It was only our second time and she refused to cross the bridge. Not really a surprise since we battle over this at the barn every single time we ride.
No bridges in polo! We also got a zero score at one obstacle that I just wouldn't make her do. It was a very high step up onto a berm. We just passed on it because I knew it was beyond her ability. Even the judge admitted he thought it was a little too high for some horses.
I am going to post some pics but have to do one at a time since I am on my ipad. This first one is of us getting ready to head out.
