And training begins....

Happy January! After a month or so of trot sets, then going home for the holidays, I arrived back at Buck's Ocala farm with only a few days until the first competition of the year. With one show jump school under our belt that week, we felt a little rusty going into a prelim event that acted as our first cross country school! Simon, my cross country machine, did not disappoint and flounced around the course like a ballerina.

Simon, although excelling in his job as an event horse, causes me to doubt his survival skills when licking faucets instead of drinking out of his full and fresh water buckets....


It's true and heaven help us.....but I am so so excited for these boys! Both horses came from famous grand prix jumper, Aaron Vale's farm:

Elvis is an 11yo Holsteiner who has done 4'6" jumpers and is now enjoying the luxurious life of an event pony. The goal is to do a one star this spring!

Lusty is not amused or concerned by the presence of these new "annoying" additions to the team. She will continue to be fabulous and adorable. All other horses are "soooooo beneath her" ;)

Developments at home: I am still living in my horse trailer, but have incorporated two pink flamingos and a lawn gnome. My ultimate goal is to have a mini white picket fence and shrubbery...

This is a quick update much much more to come!!!

Jump like you mean it!
