A hunter/jumper trainer is leasing space at the saddleseat barn where last weekend’s show was held [Report]. Not just any h/j trainer but one who had taught Previous Horse and with whom I had hoped to continue on Rodney. Back when, I had talked with him about shipping in &/or what it would cost to come to our barn. Needless to say, that never happened.
If all had gone according to plan, I would have been shipping to that very barn and jumping over those very jumps. This did not pass unnoticed by the screaming monkeys in my head on Saturday.
I am enjoying my new life. Still, it was hard to watch remnants of my old life, wearing boots & britches and riding Thoroughbreds, passing through the crowd while I was wearing jodhpurs and holding a Saddlebred.
