Why do such wonderful horsey things always have to fall on the same day? WHY?!
I mentioned at some point last year that I wanted to dabble in western dressage a little bit. I didn't have much opportunity last year, so I've been keeping my eyes open for western dressage related shows and clinics this year. Well, it just so happens there's one this month, and it's just the kind of event I've been looking for. It's about a 3 hour drive and starts at 8am (hello early morning), but I think it would be a lot of fun.
I hopped over to my calendar to save the day and BAM! There it is... the conflict! I already have a show clinic scheduled for that same Saturday. JCHSS is having a judge come out to coach and judge showmanship, english equitation, western horsemanship, and trail. I was going to sign up for showmanship and horsemanship to get some pointers as we kick off the show season. There's also going to be a swap and shop going on at the same time (shopping... woohoo!).
I would take Lilly to the JCHSS show clinic, but I wouldn't take her to the dressage clinic. They're allowing 12 horses, but I don't think we're quite ready to participate in the clinic. I think the JCHSS clinic would be a bit more beneficial for us, but I really, REALLY want to go to that dressage clinic.
I'll probably end up taking her to the show clinic... both are first come, first served so I need to decide and send in my paperwork. I wish they weren't happening the same weekend. So bummed.
