It's already March! The cherry blossoms are out (a tad bit early). We have flowers in our garden and the woodpeckers are back with annoying early morning wake up calls. (They use the metal siding for announcing their territory!)
This is a great time to clean out your show trunk. You never know what may be in it (unless it's Morris taking a spring nap) :)
Check with Corey to be sure you have everything you will need for those first few shows. There seems to always be something that has gone missing since last season.
Have you joined WSHJA? This is YOUR local organization that rewards its membership with year end awards. Also, is your horse or pony registered with all the required associations? Those of you on the competition team should check with Corey to be sure all your cards are in order. You should have a USEF card for your horse/pony. A USEF card for the rider, a WSHJA membership and, if you are entering any medal classes, you should have an ASPCA card (this is for the Maclay).
Happy riding. These lessons in March are a count-down for the shows in April.
