Today I woke up and it felt like FALL! It was crisp and cool and even now at 3:16 PM REMUS is out in the field, grazing. Loving this. We hauled out for a lesson this morning and it was a good one! The first few jumps we were out of sync and just not doing it right. The last round where I went around four jumps (two cross rails, two oxers) we nailed it! We also cantered both ways without even a pissy attitude let alone a buck. Not sure who this horse is but I like it!!
Remus’s winter coat is coming in. Lots of dapples and hair growing in. He is also even darker than last week.
So we have a show at the barn where I lesson tomorrow. I am sure it will be a lot of kids but a few adults I ride with are going. Remus is no hunter so we may end up in the jumper division (he is no jumper either). But it will be fun. And I need to get out more. SO OUT WE GO. Yikes. My instructor said she was signing me up for stuff and will tell me tomorrow. LOL oh jeez. I may be in trouble??

Not too many classes and it is very casual. I asked if we (buckskin, me, and being an eventer) will stick out like a sore thumb and she said no. Hmm we will see. I am not going to be as purple as usual and I found my tan breeches way way way in the back of the closet. Here we go!! Wish us luck!!
