This weekend (and Friday) was Plantation Field Horse Trials. For me, Plantation officially started Thurday night when a party of 4 eventers rolled in to spend the weekende in our home. They also brought 2 dogs and 4 vehicles, bringing our numbers to this:
10 people- 4 eventers in various rooms, 2 riders on 3rd floor, and Andie and Brian in the cottage.
7 dogs- Zippy and Dooky with the eventers, Scruffy on the third floor, Sammy and Beau in the cottage and of course, our dogs, Rosie and Sim. Hmmm.
Our broken car in the garage, plus our other car and truck. 4 vehicles for the eventers, 1 for 3rd floor, and 2 for the cottage= 10 vehicles.
It was a wee bit crowded. ( I dont ever remember saying wee is RL...)
On Friday I rushed after school to Plantation, arriving in time to see Sprite's slightly nervous dressage test. It wasnt her best test,but it wasn't her worst either. She was competing at Preliminary level, By the way. Two hours later was SJ, again slightly nervous and she ticked one of the rails. Molly did a fantastic job riding her.
|Sprite warming up for XC- she is actually jumping a jump beside the one you see. :P|
I am dissapointed, but I know it was an honest, green mistake. Sprite didn't know that jumping in that big would cause her to flip. Next time she won't do it.
