There are a ton of photos of us coming across the finish line at VE Photography. We're actually the cover shot for the album, which I think is kinda cool. Most of the photos of us are on page 2, if you want to wander over an check them out.
Daatje led most of the way, was fairly brave jumping without a lead and even logged her first brush jump.
We really don't have anything on the schedule unless I can bring ourselves to compete at the Groton House Summer Classic. I've been so busy working on the property that I have barely had any time to go for a hack, let alone school for competition.
Which brings my to why I don't blog much these days. I want the horses to come home by Labor Day and we've got stalls to build and fencing to put up before then! It seems like every waking moment that I'm not a work, I'm spending working on the property. A temporary sidetrack to my regular routine, but well worth it in the end.
Here's where we left off yesterday after 8 hours of working in the barn, constructing what will be Daatje and the mini's stalls.....
Here's what the barn looked like the day the contractor started working on it.....
So, that's what's been keeping me from riding much. But, with any luck we'll have the horses home in a few months and I'll have time to fit in training rides and competing instead of construction. :P
