How far is far? Try walking from Tent 1 to Ring 1!! After three weeks, our shoes, our grooms and our horses are worn out! Lack of electricity in tent 1 with temps in the high 80’s meant no fans and could have led to a rebellion, but Jorge, Ramon, Gaspar and Marucio held it together and did a great job! All the ribbons meant that the horses showed then went back to the barn. Then when the class is coming to the end, they had to return to the ring for the jog. Not complaining, mind you, everyone that competed got ribbons. Classes were really big and we’re proud of everyone!!
For these three weeks we had 13 horses and their families. You know you’re having fun when you are all sitting around in the dark snacking, talking and drinking wine. I think we really enjoy each other’s company and doing it all with horses too couldn’t be better. Everyone seemed to have a bottle of Kim Crawford and Wendy Shell, Wendy Rice and Susan Wright provided the snacks!! Wendy Rice even brought a Keurig one week. That was really nice in the mornings.
