I still haven't gotten into the swing of things since returning from Orlando and working my ass off for a solid week (And my foot is still bothering me from all the pounding concrete I did there).

One reason could be due to my logging over 28,000 … Continue reading Fair Hill Starter Trials Part I: Dressage, Course Walking, and Baby, It’s Hot Outside
