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. It was a beautiful summer day and such a fun opportunity. All COVID protocols were in place and people were super respectful of them.  Due to our stop, we ended up in 8th place with a 3rd place team finish!

Ad with a twist: horse is NOT looking for a good home....

I have mare who will turn 30 years old this year. She is not looking for a new home. She is sound, sane, still doing great, but she is aged. She is not looking for a new home because she will never be dumped. Actually, she has a nice airy stall and private paddock, is eating lots of hay, and is grained twice a day just like she would be if she was still a usable horse. If you know of a new home that would like to pick up my old horse who has done her time with me, who would like to pay her vet/farrier bills long into retirement, please don't call me because it's MY job to do that for her.


Back in 1993, Sparky came into my life as my first horse.  As her eleventh owner in ten years, I promised her a forever home and she's got it.  


I borrowed this from Amy and tweaked it for my own use.  I love it.  :-)
