Many thanks to all my great readers who cheered me on and supported me through the show. I really was encouraged by all the well wishes. Many people in my Other Life do not understand what the show meant to me, but I know from all the comments that you understand. So thank you!
Today Brego and I went for a long hack through the woods alone. We ran around, trotting and cantering logs, and then just walked on the buckle. I learned a lot about both myself and Brego during the show, the least of which is how great he is outside the arena. I had forgotten that. I am going to try to get out more, at least twice a week. I am also putting together another couple of blog posts that go into more detail about some of the things I learned at the show, specifically around shoes and traction and, of course, conditioning.
And Mae, there will not be another recognized show this year, but I have lots of fun activities planned for the fall! Hint: Cubbing season starts soon!
