I haven't had much time to write since I am getting ready for the Rocky Mountain Dressage Championships. I ride in the Level III championship class on Saturday the 20th. My ride time is at 2:56 p.m. Happily, we are supposed to get a break in the heat by then. I hope so. It is so hard to ride a forward ride when Jazz is hot and tired. I will give him a rest on Friday. I will scribe for a judge in the morning then come home and ride Jazz quietly around the neighborhood. Saturday morning I will bathe him and braid his mane. He doesn't like baths very well! He is quite good about standing still while I braid him, however.
Yesterday's lesson with my trainer, Grant Schneidman went really well. Grant told me a great joke:
"How do you make a small fortune with horses?.......Start with a large fortune!"
Man is that true!
Okay, wish me luck!
Another note: The championships are being held at the Colorado Horse Park in Parker, Colorado. This is a fabulous horse show facility and I have loved showing there for many years. Sadly, it is now for sale and the only people who are putting up offers are developers that want to turn it in to more houses!!! If that happens, we will loose the best facility around. If you have a bunch of money, please come buy it and save it for the horse shows!!!
