So much to share!

OTTB-Tee's, cross country schooling, eventers are the best people on the planet and I can't believe how much freaking stuff I have to do before I leave on Thursday.  One of them being cleaning my house doing all the laundry and packing for everyone for the weekend.  All that has to be done before I do the one million things that need to be done for the show.  I have NO idea how I am going to fit it all in. 

First and foremost Kristen and Laz deserve the biggest shout-out ever!  I surprisingly procrastinated and didn't order my OTTB-Tee until just a few days ago.  I sent a note to Kristen and I had my shirt in had like 3 days later <3!  That is awesome!  I then got to sport it on our cross country lesson!  And it will be shown off with pride at the Horse Trial in just 2 days!  OMG it is 2 days away!  My favorite part of it all was the note she sent along with it.

How sweet is this?

I made sure Steady got his kisses from Kristen.


We went XC schooling on Memorial Day.  Once again this horse never ceases to amaze me.  The trust that I have earned with him over the last 2 years is paying off 10 fold now.  I can point him at anything and he just does it.  There is no looking or over thinking.  I say jump and he says how high and it is so damn fun!  We did some completely new things we did this weekend!  A hanging log over a ditch.  I saw it from far away and told the instructor I wanted to go do that because we have never jumped anything with a ditch under it.  I would say 3 ft high 3 across and he did like it was nothing or like he had done it a million times.  We jumped a stone wall, a large bench that had big rocks all over it and one of my favorite a skinny palisade.  We have never done a skinny and I was very thrilled.  It was all so awesome!  I feel like we are as prepared as possible for the HT.  The only thing I didn't get to practice that I would have liked to is water, there was no water in it.  I guess that leaves us with one surprise.

It is crunch time.  I leave at 3 pm on Thursday.  So just 40 hours until departure and it is unbelievable what I still need to do.  Let me tell you a few things.  I have to deliver for the Co-op tomorrow which includes driving about 200 miles.  I have to bake 8 loaves of bread, pick up everything, sort it, weigh it, pack it into my car then deliver it.  That is not even touching the facts that I really should ride my horse (not sure that is going to happen), clean my tack, wash all saddle pads, go grocery shopping, pack for camping (such a chore in itself), pack the trailer and so on and so on.  Yikes! 

I have followed along with some of my favorite bloggers and started a facebook page.  It is a quick and easy way to update from my phone.  So if you want to come over and "like" us here is the link
Well I guess the next 6 of those 40 hours are best spend with my eyes closed good night.
