|2009 Rodeo on Speedy|
Wednesday night, B and I went to the mixer.
Thursday night, all three of us went to family night.
|Picked out her own cowboy hat and rocked it!|

Friday was a trainer ride, Henry was really good.
Saturday was a lesson for me. Got to the barn, got Henry, tacked up and got on. It was hot so I opted out of lunging. It was just Clare, Mona and me.
We flatted around, Henry was up but nothing bad. The wind was KILLER and the heat was extreme.
We went outside so that I could jump. Warmed up over a little line and then went to the rainbow oxer and the in an out. I was seeing nothing and getting Henry to the base of EVEYTHING. Had a moment where I was thinking I couldn't do it- then sucked it up and got more pace to the jumps and bam it worked. Jumped the oxer three times well and then my trainer said good and zoomed off in the golf cart. We turned around to see the hill of fire...

Not exactly how I wnated to spend my Saturday. I had my "other mom" ready to come pick Henry up and take him to their house.
I cleaned Henry up, helped move the horses from the back hill pastures and then waited...
Boarders stared to show up and were frantically asking what was the plan... um yeah we were all wondering the same thing.
Question: Does your BO have a plan for fire? Or other situations like that? I knew since my trainer was there that we were "taken care of" but I found it unsettling that there wasn't a barn plan and the BO/BM were no where to be found till well over 2 hours after everything "started".
Once all was cleared, I put Henry and Louie back in their stall, filled waters and went home.

Went out around 9 pm that evening to make sure that all was still well.
Sunday I spent from noon on at the rodeo helping out with flags and warming up horses for people :)
