OH NOOOOOOO – Tropical Storm Bill

11429924_10204855307074992_9032890550967491431_nIt’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 20150613_201203important 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.

20150614_113936Last 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.

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.
