Just a Quick Shout-Out :)

Hey my friends!

I guess I finally became a truly neglectful blogger.
Social networking is so much easier than blogging is. It's easier to log in (for my situation), easier to upload photos, easier to arrange them... Blogger went on the backburner.

I've been trimming more and more. At this time I'm still attending a community college, so I don't do any advertising really. I have 27 personal horse clients that I trim at this time :)

I became an aunt in July! I love to spend time with my nephew, Benaiah. He is such a cutie! :)

Daisy and I have been enjoying the use of the horse trailer that we got last year. We didn't do any events really this year. She abscessed in June which caused us to miss a barrel race we planned on. We finally got to a couple hunterpaces.

Daisy today, as we did a final tack-check before this weekend.

This coming weekend we will compete in our first 15 mile (24km) competitive trail ride! It's actually a competititive conditioning ride, not a true CTR (It's a CDR), but it's the farthest we'll have ever ridden on a day. I am so excited! We're borrowing some endurance tack from a friend ;) (I should have seen some endurance coming when that endurance saddle came under my ownership a few years ago! ;) )

 We shove off for the showgrounds Saturday morning. Vet checks are Saturday afternoon. We camp out in the horse trailer overnight and head out for the ride Sunday morning! Upon completion the horses are re-evaluated by a vet and then placed based on timing and physical condition. 

I can hardly wait! Depending on how Daisy does on Sunday and whether she likes it, I'm hoping to continue to do CTR's with her next year. Maybe we'll get a 25 mile and 30 mile under our belt ;)

I hope you're all doing well!
