Saturday was their 3rd APHA show and this one was fairly small - usually 7 riders in her 13 and under classes and about 11 in the Novice Youth classes. But the competition was still tough. And the weather was even tougher. The morning was brisk, really brisk. Almost all the horses were feeling pretty frisky including Stanley. The wind picked up and brought short but frequent rain showers making for just a lovely cold, wet afternoon. But my girl stuck it out and had placings in almost every class and quite often middle of the pack placings with both judges. We had a lot of fun, met some new people and are really looking forward to the fall shows!
I should probably mention that Equestrian Girl and I took Stanley on a little trail ride tonight. Well, she took the horse and I hoofed it on foot. It was good exercise! And ol' Stanley loved it!
Motocross: Well....if Motocross Boy doesn't get his buns in gear this week, he might not be going to the Baja Brawl. He's been walking a pretty thin line and it got even thinner today. Scott is ready to throw in the towel and not take him for a very strong lesson. My bet is that they'll still go. But we'll see.
Homeschooling: That K12 curriculum I've been eyeballing is on sale for 3 days - up to 40% off though I can't figure out if what I want will be the full 40% off or not... I'm still not desperate to buy it and I'm pretty happy with what we have going right now so we'll see. I don't exactly have money burning a hole in my pocket!
