Gymkhana day. . . barrel racing and pole bending.
The end of the 4H shows for horses always end with a little banquet pizza party where awards are handed out.
Drumroll. . . .
Daisy and I got Overall Senior High Point again this year! :)
The extra exciting thing was that for the first time, they had ribbons for the high point horses to wear. How fun!
And so fair week came to a close.
I had a riding lesson through pony club on Thursday morning. . . unfortunately, it turns out Daisy has quite a sore back, I assume from county fair and all that riding. She's been standing parked out, trying to alleviate pressure, for the first time since 2009 when she got on her natural trim. Her right buttock is especially sore. I haven't ridden her since the lesson. I'm heading out in a few minutes to ride her over to Jenny's, where she'll stay while I'm in Costa Rica, and I can assess the situation. Hopefully the many days off while I'm gone will do her some good.
My trip to Costa Rica is a mission trip that our church youth group is doing. I am so excited! This will be my first mission trip. We're going to take part in campus evangelism, and some kids programs in poor communities.
Talk to you all when I'm back!
