It has been a very busy season for my girls. The hours of practice and hard work have resulted in a quiet, but solid riding season. While they have collected their share of ribbons and some oversized cardboard checks, the goal remains with consistent riding. Each and every ride is about riding better, honing their horsemanship skills and increasing their knowledge of their horses. As Mark and Trish, their riding coaches say, “success and winning will take care of itself.”
The horses have handled the traveling very well. In their eyes, their eagerness in the start area, the horses have enjoyed every second of competition.
Until the season ends, much more fun and work remains.
