National Academy Championship Horse Show, Murfreesboro, TN, November 1 – 3, 2013.
It’s not so much that I am tired, as tired of. My instructor’s voice echoes in my head like a bad earworm. I wake up during the wee hours in a panic that I must drive to Miller Coliseum. I have pages of notes. The idea of compiling them into posts appalls me.
I will no doubt feel up to pontificating about the show in a few days. Until then, a photo of Trump and me taken by Team Stepping Stone member & National Academy driving competitor Kathie Mautner.
The woman in the grey vest is my riding teacher Courtney Huguley. The young lady is Trump’s owner Ashlyn Seagle. The ribbons are two Top Ten neck sashes, a third place from the the Pleasure finals, and a second place from the Equitation finals.
RESERVE NATIONAL GRAND CHAMPION.
It was a good weekend.
