Finally caught up on all of my emails after I fed all the horses, cleaned all the stalls and did some more miscellaneous chores. I think the rain finally quit for a little while but it is blowing like crazy...and of course none the less we are go get an inch of snow tonight and tomorrow! Seriously, it is almost May!
Horses have been going well.
Fri & Sat we spent time at Otter Creek. Jenny Warner set up some great show jumping exercises for the horses on Sunday and Saturday was full of cross country schooling! Lucy did wonderful, she jumped everything presented to her and although a little hesitant at the large water complex once she was in she enjoyed splashing around! I am excited for her eventing debut at Otter Creek Spring Horse Trials!!! Hannah of course was awesome, let her gallop and jump out of stride over some of the preliminary and intermediate fences. Cody was a rockstar as well, he is so easy going and fun to ride! Mia will have a lot of fun on him at Otter Creek Spring riding in her first event ever!
Lots of other students and friends were there and everyone had a great learning experience although, shocking the weather was not so great! I do have to say it was better then the Thursday at Otter Creek Fall 2010 where the rain did not quit from Thursday morning until Friday morning...and it was really raining buckets! I went through a few jackets to say the least.
Unfortunately our weekend XC schooling at the Schweiss Farm had to be canceled due to the 6 inches of frost that they still have in the ground! We hope to make it out there in a few more weeks.
Now we are preparing for the Ralph Hill clinic on the 7th and 8th held at Trophy Hill. I will be riding both my girls in the clinic and look forward to what Ralph has to say about Lucy. Also looking forward to the great exercises he sets up for the horses!
The group is growing for Otter Creek Spring - we hope to have a GREAT turn out of Liz Lund Eventing horses and students! Make sure to put Liz Lund Eventing on your stable with blank if you want to stable with us!
