Show season is something I look forward to all winter long, and then when it finally gets here, I'm terribly unprepared for its arrival.
I blame the weather for keeping me from riding as much as I would have liked to these past couple months, but I don't need a sunny day to clip or clean tack so I don't really have an excuse for those items. Same with my showmanship pants... I just need to get out the sewing machine and do it. I've been feeling a bit gloomy lately, though, so it's hard to find the get-up-and-go I need to get all this stuff done. Perhaps it's a case of the cabin fever blues. Whatever it is, I hope I snap out of it soon.
|Dirty, dirty girl.|
Part of me wants to skip the show on Saturday, but I know that's just the cabin fever demon talking. So I'm going to buckle down and get everything ready so we're presentable on Saturday. There will be no bath (thanks weather!) so she'll have to look how she's going to look... slightly brown and smelling of muck. I'll band her mane and clip her up as best I can, and we'll call it good.
Maybe this show will be just what I need.
