Whew. Back from a long weekend (emphasis on LONG), with a moment or two to breathe before I plunge headlong into life again. XC lesson tomorrow, work Thursday, then on Sunday I head off for a week of the leadership camp I go to every year, then a few days back and off to groom for Devin at Rebecca Farm for almost a week...
But who am I kidding, complaining about it? If I didn't have this much to do I'd be bored. Though I wouldn't say no to some boredom at some point this summer. Maybe in September.
I spent all day today at an HB prep, which basically means a group of C-2 Pony Clubbers spent the day learning from a National Examiner about the kinds of things we'll need for our HB rating. We covered diseases, conditioning, anatomy (complete with real horse legs! Actually they were the same ones we used at the ABC retreat...), conformation, teeth, tack, nutrition, and a lot more side subjects on the way. I had a great time because I am a shameless horse nerd, but that on top of a long and tiring weekend trip means that I'm just wiped out now.
I know I owe you an Inavale report. I feel like such a slacker for still not having it up more than a week later! But I'll do my best to get it up soon. For now, it's definitely bedtime.
PS. You know what's amazing? While I was gone, not only did my mother ride McKinna in a lesson, she packed up all my stuff I need for tomorrow AND she washed McKinna's tail. My mom is awesome.
