It's really late and I am just now catching up from today's posts. A shout out to all the newbies - welcome! It is great to hear your intro stories and see the new pics!
With Grace, You posted last night about 15 mins after I went to bed...! I had waited up for a while to see if there was news. Congrats on all your ribbons! I knew you could do it! I had missed the great advice to find a victim to vomit on if needed -- that's hilarious! I'm glad you didn't need to aim and fire, though
Sounds like poor Kes gets herself in a state in the trailer, huh? That must have been a near heart attack for you to find her like that. You can get her to trust trailers again, though - any horse who'd go through noodles in the trail class for you, without practicing, has to already trust you a lot. It may take some time, but it's not an uncommon thing to have to deal with.
Anyway, I'm so proud to hear that you did so well - a really great day for both of you, all in all, and Kes's boo boos will heal. Your DH is a keeper, too!
CW, I'm looking forward to your report tomorrow! I hope it's a great day and you get to ride to your heart's content!
