A dust free ride today

I finally gave up and watered and dragged the arena yesterday. I know Mr. K said it would be easier to work with if it were dry, but I can't stand not riding almost as much as I hate riding in the dust. He hasn't called me back anyway, so I wonder if he's too busy for us now or if he has changed his mind about coming to fix our arena. Either way it would be nice to hear something from him.

I'm toying with the idea of taking Kaswyn to a local unrated show in hunter pleasure on June 1. The show is only ten minutes from the barn, and the class fee is $8! The class is for registered purebred and half arabians, and it's the only class we'd be able to show in. I'm trying to talk Susan into taking Albert too, but I don't know if she'll go for it. She might be able to borrow a friend's trailer and take me (or us) over with her truck. It could be a really fun afternoon. I have to work that morning but we might be able to make it over there in time for the class. I guess we'll just have to see. At least it's something to look forward to, since I don't see us going to a dressage show anytime soon.

Damn! I need the arena fixed already! I'm getting impatient.

Some good news is that Kaswyn still has no hives, even with the decreased dose of hydroxyzine. If I'm lucky he'll keep this up and in three weeks or so we'll make our trip to Ohio State. Yay!

$8 for a class sounds great to me. I hope you get to go. No stress, just knocking around at a show.

I'm wishing that's what I'd paid instead of what's it's costing to go to the Arab show this weekend. Especially since it looks like my horse needs the chiropractor really bad and the guy is sick. Poor Legs.

I hope you get to the show and that the arena gets fixed soon. I've given up on the one where we are and am thinking about moving my horses. Cross you fingers that it works out and I'll cross mine that he calls you back and fixes the footing for you.

Oh good for you. I am sure you are just itching to get back in the ring. So glad you are both doing well and coming out the other side
