My daughters were pretty much spent. The horses were ready to return to more familiar surroundings. Returning home, after being away for three weeks, came at the right time. A week to relax. A week to have fun. The horses pretty much know the training and riding schedule is winding down to the off-season level.

In a couple of weeks, they’ll meet with their riding coach, Mark, and chart out the off-season training schedule and regime.
*Tara was sidelined with a strap malfunction and was unable to participate in this particular splash race.
