Thank you all so much for you kind, encouraging and wise words regarding my last post. They seriously made me tear up and were so reassuring that I am not crazy and Elaina and Lily make a fine pair. I actually reasked elaina at dinner tonight the question tonight of whether she would rather have an easier ride and more trained horse/pony. Her response? No I would rather have Lily. An easier horse sounds boring. Haha girl after my heart! Then my 8 year old piped up and said, "you learn way more about riding when they are tough to ride." Smart kids I tell you! So thank you all again!
I need to close my eyes because in about 5 hours I need to be up and getting ready to make the voyage to Eventing Mecca! The tentative schedule: Thursday spend all the money! Friday course walk, course walk and course wall. (Also squeezing in some dressage rides of some our favs). Also friday evening I am stoked about attending the Thoroughbreds for all event!!! Saturday: well stand on awe as I watch the best riders on the world take on one of the hardest cross country courses on the world! Sunday: catch some stadium rounds and take some tours of a couple farms. And all the crazy awesome fun to be had will be! Can't wait!
