When I first started my lessons a few months back I thought there was no way either of us would ever be able to pull of anything that resembled dressage. Well we are on our way. Not in any hurry but on our way. He needs to take things slow and so do I. I still have weight to loose and get into better shape. So I hope hope hope that next year will be the year for us to event. But even saying seems a long shot. But I think I will be surprised when next spring rolls around.
My instructor said we are ready for our first small show! I am excited about that. It has been sooooo long since I have showed it will be like learning all over again. So I am meeting up with a lady I met via internet at a show this weekend without horses. Just to get the feel of it again. I came to know her because she bought an OTTB about the same time I did from the same lady. Actually she almost bought Steady and that is how we started emailing. So I am lookng forward to hanging around the show and observing.
