This Is Why You Can’t Do It All
Adventures in Saddle Seat, or Not
For the first time since I starting showing saddle seat in 2012, I did not ride at the Alabama Charity Championship show. This is our big fall show. The association runs it. Everybody goes. Except me.
I had two shows this month. They occurred on the same day, at the same time. This is why dueling disciplines does not work.
Let us airily wave away the cost of two horse show seasons. Let us make the rash assumption that I could possibly leave Horse A in the care of someone while I show Horse B. Let us decree that I am a brilliant, adaptable rider who can encompass conflicting styles.
You can’t fight the schedule.
