Thank you to Miriam Reagan & Saddlebred Rescue, Courtney Huguley, and the Wamble family for the wonderful horses.

There is no home court advantage at a horse show. There is a home court DISadvantage. The home team objects to having their personal space invaded by strange horses, big trucks, and swarms of people. It happened in 2013 with Trump [Report], in 2014 with Natalie [Report], and this year with Sam:

Sam: Eeek! Cars! By the ring! I’ve never seen a car before! I’m scared!
Me: No, you’re not.
Sam: I’m a high-strung, sensitive horse, I could be scared.
Me: Ain’t gonna happen.
Sam: Oh, poo.

The driving class? Greg & Alvin won! He says it was fun. Also, if one is going to help another person perform, it is useful to see the view from the inside the ring. At least that’s what he says publicly.

Privately? All hail the driving god.


Of course, there were hordes of chores at the barn, of which I was happy not to partake. Being a princess has advantages.

Favorited myself. Not sure how.

When I’m working a show, that is.

This is the second time Alvin has beaten Big in Academy Driving. Big is clearly the nicer horse, but I think he is less tolerant of driver error.

They frolic adorably, as well. However, I have a better chance of getting a decent photo while they are sleeping adorably.

  1. Sounds like fun. Wish I could have been there. And go Alvin! (Big and I will get you next time!)

  2. Many congrats to Greg! You made a horseman out of him, didn’t you?
    Love the kitty pix.
