We have our ride times for the first show of the season. Wow, I am nervous, even though it is "just" a fundraising schooling dressage show. It's been raining all week so I haven't ridden since Sunday. It should be dry enough today to at least get out and the arena should be ready tomorrow.

I am also doing the Training 3 test which is brand new for me, the stretchy trot being particularly difficult. However, I wanted to get the test "broken in" at a schooling show before debuting it at a big show, so I figured now was the time, unprepared or not.
Oh my, so much to do. Clean tack, bath the winter gunk off of Brego, clean up his mane, prep the trailer, fill the water tanks, learn my tests (ack!).
At 10:50 am on Sunday, I will be turning up the centerline for the first time in the '09 season. It's here.
