Saturday I was up early to go take care of Ruby - took her out for a handwalk to stretch her legs, cleaned her stall, brushed all the shavings off her (homegirl did a lot of sleeping apparently lol). Since my rides weren't until between noon and one, I had plenty of time to watch/cheer for many other riders from our barn! We had riders from training all the way up through a horse making an I-1 debut with TrainerB - including a musical freestyle!
|Watching everyone else get ready for their rides.|
|Sporting an elegant forelock braid from one of my barnmates - I'm super thankful I keep Ruby roached so I don't have to braid the rest of her mane lol.|
|Let's do this!|
|One of the decent pictures from Saturday.|
|She doesn't care that we placed 1/1 and 5/5, she just cared that I kept her hay bag full and that she got to make eyes over the wall at the stallion next to us|
(oh yeah, did I forget to mention they stabled us next to a stallion? sigh)
|AMAZING dinner at BC's.|
We were able to head back to the hotel at a reasonable hour and get some sleep, and thankfully nobody at my barn rode before 9 a.m. on Sunday so I felt like we didn't need to be there quite as early.
