RABT Summer Cross Country Derby - July 12, 2020

At the beginning of July, Ellie and I tackled our first ever BN level XC course at a competition! We take jumping lessons with Babette at RABT Farm (Rest & Be Thankful Farm), so having Babette there that day to coach me was perfect.  We did have some bobbles on my part, like not riding to each fence and not enough leg (NEVER ENOUGH LEG) so we had one stop on course, but I was super pumped to have a chance to jump around a course at a place we are totally comfortable but it was a crazy chaotic day with 50 horse/rider pairs and a ton more activity than our Wednesday lesson days!  ready to go I paid for a second unjudged round after our division of nine riders jumped and we went clean.

One of my favorite blogger friends, Andrea, is facing a very difficult decision right now with her gorgeous mare Gogo.  After several successful years of eventing, Gogo sustained an injury at the AECs two years ago.  Andrea has done absolutely everything in her power to help Gogo heal, but sadly it sounds like she might have to make the difficult decision to let her go.  I really admire Andrea as a horse person, rider, and woman.  It is completely heartbreaking to me to read her blog posts and Facebook statuses lately.  I never understand why bad things happen to great people and horses.

Please take a moment to visit Andrea's blog and leave her a message.  I know fellow horse folks understand what it is like to have to make the kindest and most difficult decision for their beloved horse.

We are all thinking of you, Andrea and Gogo.  xoxox
