It’s time for the State Horse Show in Shawnee and TS Bill is bringing lots of rain and flooding to OK. Again. But a week ago, the mud was hard as a rock and Ivy tested her jumping out of trailers holding big, western saddles skills and stretched two important ankle ligaments. Ouch. The doctor prescribed no riding for 2 weeks and no running for 1 month. She wants to ride at state anyway and we will see how things go.
Last weekend the ODS/GCC held the Green Country Classic recognized dressage show at the Claremore Expo. The girls and I volunteered on Sunday morning and we saw some beautiful rides and some fabulous horses. Patty and Prince were high point Friesian and Christina and Millie were highpoint Arabian! Richal, Anne, and Ruthie had beautiful rides too.
Then, we helped out at Horses4Heroes at Pinto World. 4-H kids helped give a horse experience to veterans and their families. Very fun, horsey day and Alaina managed to have her western show hat reshaped and fitted just in time for the state horse show.
Geronimo and Bree are becoming pros at hanging with the girls. Bree will lean on you all day long if you itch the right spot and G-man only wants to nibble on everything that moves – or doesn’t. They are so cute.
For Steve on Father’s Day, my plan is to give him some peace and quiet by taking the girls and horses for a trail ride. Good plan – if it dries out by then.
