Where I've Been

I know I promised to be better about blogging, but I was sucked into a barn black hole. I've been working my tail off the last 2 months or so. We had our Spring Show last Saturday on St. Patrick's Day so I did a whole green theme (I love themes!) and honestly I'm so relieved it's all over. I had lots of green decorations, special green horse show ribbons and metals with green neck ribbons.

We had so many events leading up to this show and it was a ton of work. We had 3 clinics for dressage, jumping and riding to music or dressage freestyle. And a clean up day when we did a ton of paining and fixing up the barn. And then we had the day of horse show prep where we got all the horses prettied up for the show. Of course, it was all worth it to see my students show off their skills. All the students did really well. The reaction from my 6 year old student, Max, when he got his blue ribbon in jumping just totally made my day. His face just lit up and he squealed and gave me a big, long hug around the waist. Worth it. And we had some amazing raffles that were donated from local vendors and we raised a lot of money for the horses.

Yesterday one of the clients said "There is just something so nice about coming to a place where everyone gets along." It's so true. I completely love all the amazing ladies I get to work with! Not only do we spend a huge amount of time at work together, but we also love to hang out outside of work too. After work drinks and dinners at each others house. Just couldn't do what I do without them, well I wouldn't enjoy it half as much!

Looks like so much fun! I wish little h was old enough (3) to begin riding lessons at the stables on post here at Fort Leavenworth! What a great animal to learn from :)

Those drinks look sooo good :)
