It’s amazing how fast my schedule fills up when I suddenly have the ability to go wherever I want, whenever I want. Truck and Trailer, I love you.
I love going place with friends… that’s fun, of course. But I also like going places alone. I like driving, I don’t mind the solitude, and Henry of course is a bit more focused on ME when he doesn’t have any friends with him.
Last weekend I went to Houston for a jump lesson, and I’m going again this weekend.
Then the weekend after that is XC schooling.
Then the weekend after that is an indoor eventing thing. I’m intrigued by this concept, so I must go try it myself.
After that I need a dressage lesson (although look at all the other options that weekend…)
because next up on the docket there’s an eventing derby, which I’m pretty excited about
and a Combined Test the weekend after.
It’s kind of amazing how many things I can do now. I made a master list of every event, combined test, derby, schooling h/j show, schooling dressage show, open schooling, etc for the year within a 4 hour drive and it’s literally a 6 page Word document. SIX. That’s 6 pages full of things to choose from in whatever way my little heart desires.
Henry is a great traveler and I figure since we are only going to do one or two recognized events before Coconino, getting as many cheap miles as possible isn’t a bad idea. Especially right now when the weather is nice (the entire 10 day forecast is 73-83 degrees), because we all know how fast that can change. We shall go forth and conquer all the things and hopefully come out more seasoned on the other side.
When you’re suddenly handed the world and a bajillion different options, how do you choose what to do? Obviously budget is the limiting factor, but what about beyond that?
(and yes, you just got Zoolander’d and Aladdin’d all in the same post)
