Let's see.... a couple of weeks ago I showed at California State Fair in the Ranch Versatility. It was an AQHA show they opened up to all breeds. The big white horse was the only "other breed" there. My bestie went with me. She makes me laugh, distracts me from over thinking, keeps things in perspective for me and is one of my biggest supporters. Her sense of humor is beyond comparison. She posted this picture of us on Facebook with the caption:
Last weekend we took a break from the showing thing and went to St. Bernard Lodge. Rode from there over to Drakesbad. The same ride we did last year. This year 10 of us went. What a great time with great friends! The weather was glorious. We didn't get lost this year and made it to the lodge in record time. Ate lunch and then rode up to Devil's Kitchen. It is a geothermal site in the park. Water boils, mud percolates, and as my bestie said "you can fart here and not get in trouble". The smell of sulfur is overwhelming.
My daughter went along and she refuses to ride any horse but the big white one - she has pretty "high brow" taste in horses. (I mean really, it is like giving your kids the keys to the Corvette.) I rode Bob. The more I ride him, the more I like him. He was the youngster on the trip but he out performed some of the older more seasoned horses. He took everything we put in front of him in stride. Even the bear! In the park they are putting up a lot of elevated walkways. Mr. Bob went across them like he had been doing it for years. Even when he had to go out first.
