Ha! Yesterday I mailed off our entry for the State Fair Mustang Show, so we're committed – or I should be! Lance and I are going to play at Trail, English Pleasure, Dressage Suitability, "Dressage" – whatever they mean by that . . . and Liberty! (Why not? He's has a pretty reliable recall, likes to play, and my friend Kate has a lot of liberty music from showing miniature horses.)
I haven't had the time or arena footing to do anything but ride around on our hill, so what we do in Salem on September 2 will simply be a demonstration of our relationship and training together to date. I'm just going to clean my tack, give Lance a bath, ignore his rubbed mane and tail, and be prepared to laugh at our mistakes and have fun with other horsefolk. If that includes any of my blogpals, even better! We'll be showing out of my trailer to save a little $ and for a little more bio-security, so you can look for us in the arena or at the red Ford F250 with the white Logan three-horse trailer.
