My day for the LWSC bridle trails show started off with my alarm going off at 3am on Saturday morning. Too early! Reminded me of my junior years when I would get up in the middle of the night to braid as a way to earn money to help support the horses.Down I went to the barn to get equipment and ponies loaded in small horse trailer and haul them over to the show. We arrived at 5am when it was just starting to get light out. Krista and I were on clue and Maggie by 6am to school ponies in the show ring. Jenna and Payton arrived with Clare by 6:30 so Payton could organize to show in her scheduled classes by 7:30. Thank heavens for Starbucks and for my Mom delivering it.
After the ponies did their classes I drove them home and then came back for our other riders whose classes went in the afternoon. Of course on the way back I stopped for our second round of Starbucks! We wrapped up around 7pm and once home Payton and I showered and climbed into bed from exhaustion. Back up Sunday morning at 4:15 to repeat the process again and will step right into our show in Monroe next week.
It may not be glamorous but it's my life and I love it!
