Horses, Life, A Touch of Geek

Here I Am

Yes, I am at Nationals.
No, I don’t want to talk about it.

Partly, everything I could say, I’ve said in previous years. [2013, 2014, 2015, 2016]

Partly, I could post positive perkiness …

… but it wouldn’t be real. I’m still fretting, as I did all spring and summer. No closer to understanding the cause. Not closer to finding a solution.

Partly, in the past, yapping has not kept me from being a hot mess. I’m trying not yapping.

Logistics
As I understand the rules, my only cut-off was on Friday for both riding classes. Fourteen adults went down to 10. Then, those 10 ride Saturday & Sunday. If I were benevolent dictator, I’d go from 14->12, then 12->10. More drama, more entry fees. Or stick with all 14 through Sunday. Be more like the kids, who have to ride in 16-horse finals. (Post written before I left. Will try to include Friday results before this goes live.)

There are not usually enough drivers to require a cut-off. Classes Friday & Saturday. No driving final on Sunday.

In the past, there has been livestream on Sunday. Link here.

I may Tweet. I may not. In the event that I do, I have added Twitter to the sidebar for your convenience.

Thank you for reading,

    Awesome rides and Awesome job!!!!!!

  2. 10q. It felt like it went well. Is there anything that beats a good ride?

    • what does 10q mean?

      • Ten-que. As in ten-que very much. Not, as you might think, Internet slang. It’s from the book C D B (See The Bee) by William Steig.

        … or at least I thought it was from there. Google says the C D B version of Thank You is N Q. Maybe it is Internet slang. Huh.

        Anyway. Means thank you.
