Stable Women?

Last Sunday, New Year’s Day, was the holiday gathering of the stable women, as in horse stable women, not necessarily sensible stable women.

With six women riding in an indoor arena, there was no putting Luke into automatic pilot and taking photos. After all, we were doing quadrilles. And it was no easier coordinating a photo of horses and riders in the barn. This was the best I could do.

It was wonderful seeing and riding with everyone, especially since a couple of the ladies trailered in and I don’t get to see them very often. Too bad I don’t show, as it sounds like several women have some exciting show plans for 2012.

My hopes for 2012 include getting over my solo trailering phobia (for the second time) and spending more time trail riding this spring, summer, and fall. Fingers-crossed that the weather is more cooperative this year. But letting weather stop me is another cop out.

So no fear and no excuses. After that, I have to decide whether I’m going to keep the trailer or sell it to have money for other things. How I do this year will help me make that decision.

  2. What a fun get together! And Luke is such a handsome and sweet boy-I love him 🙂 so glad you are getting to ride and be around good friends-a wonderful way to begin the year!

  3. I am always nervous when trailering solo. So far so good. I think just doing it more helps. If only all of the crazy drivers out there would realize that I can’t stop on a dime. Love the pictures! The one with Luke sticking out his tongue cracks me up. Eco does that every time I get someone to take a picture of us. Either that or he closes his eyes. Ha.
