Mommy in spurs

Well it's almost here...Show season. I am going to a pretty good size show in March. Yikes that's only a month away. (nail biting) In the last month I think I've ridden three or four times. (more nail biting and a sheepish grin) Bob has gotten out of course, but the rain and mud and sickness has kept me grounded. I did fight through sinus pain and ride on Saturday. The good news is that Bob is getting older and more well behaved after longer stall stays.
I have decided to change up my show schedule. Hopefully that will be a good thing. I am feeling pretty confident at this point. Bob seems to be going along pretty well. Of course that all could change once we get to the show. The first show is an open show so I think we will be pretty competitive.
A girl friend of mine is going to be at the March show with us. She is also bringing her 9 month old baby. (holy cow) TLC was over a year when I took him to his first show and NOT breast feeding any more. All I can say is not easy. I told her of course I would help her but not to expect this show to be like it used to be. Forget about schooling your horse if he was bad in the show ring. You gotta schedule everything around naps and lunch/snack/whatever. I plan on leaving my little cowboy at home with the Hunter. Any way I'll keep you all posted and try and add some training video.

Glad you are taking time to focus on you, sometimes as mom's we put ourselves way down the list...

Hi! Just started following your blog!
What a handsome horse bob is. Nice mover!
I've been on the hunt for the 'perfect' horse for a long time now!

My level of wow went up a bit when you said you carted your kid to a show and worked around naps.

9 month old? Is that even fun any more? lol

I don't know if I would go right to fun...but it was enjoyable to be able to continue with something I love so much even with my little boy. I hope someday he may want to show too.
