Yesterday was our first experience riding as part of a team. Equestrian Girl had joined the local school's Junior Equestrian Team - this is the middle school team. The biggest reason was to make friends with like-minded local kids (homeschooled kids are so sheltered and have no friends you know). It really wasn't about showing since we already had a pretty full show schedule for the year. Let's just say that yesterday was about the most stressful show situation we've ever had - and Equestrian Girl was only in 6 classes. I didn't love it.
And today's show is a scratch, or at least it is for us. The show grounds got hit by a whopper storm this morning and more rain is coming. And our Stanley needs a break. He needs a break.This is a picture of Equestrian Girl and Stanley on the left a millisecond after the bay mare kicked her in the thigh. She's okay - bad bruise and scrape.
