And the winner is.....

Thank you to all who shared and entered my contest. My blog went from 98 to 110 followers through the contest!  I really enjoyed it and will do it again when we hit 150 followers.  There is one more catch to winning the contest.  You must share with us what you purchased from SmartPak!  That way I can live vicariously through you!

Congratulations to TBA Thoroughbred Adventures with a splash of Paint you were selected from the 16 entrants with  I just need your email address so I can email you your $50 SmartPak gift card!!

I didn't get around last week to telling you how Steady really wanted to kill me during our ride on Thurday at S's house.  We warmed up with a short trail ride through her trails then went to 'jump' but the only jumping we did was when all four feet left the ground during several bucks and twists and all sorts of silly games. 
Pretty much how it went.  Except less smiling and more curse words on the monkey's part.

Elaina's ride went nicely on Lily though.  They even got to work through some exciting times while the tractor was moving round bales all around the fields around the arena.  They both did great.  I had I nice ride yesterday at home.  Today I am supposed to be jumping with S again at her place.  I am trying to figure out how to fit that in to my schedule today.
Trail riding at the State Park tommorow, ride at home on Friday then off to Kentucky Horse Park on Saturday morning.  I am picking up a complete stranger and her horse in Cinncinati on the way down.  She was asking for a ride to school xc on a FB site I am a part of.  Always an adventure right. 
I also got news that I am officially on team Veterans & Vixens for Team Challenge!!!   I cannot express how excited I am about this.  IEA has several teams going.  I have a feeling it will be some GOOD times!!
