|Two cool bloggers with mares named Sugar meet in MA.|
I'm on a business trip. During the day I meet with clients, and at night I sit in my hotel room catching up on emails, perusing Facebook, and (this week) stay up way too late watching Shark Week. My first night in Massachusetts I stayed in my favorite seaside town and while I was there I took a few pics and posted them to Facebook. Shortly after I posted them a woman I've "met" through blogging responded to my post offering suggestions on where to eat while I was in town. I'd totally forgotten she lived in the state I was currently traveling in!
Funny part about this --huge small world twist here- is that this woman is from New Jersey, as I am, and owns a mare named Sugar! WHAT???? I dare you to calculate the odds on that! Long story short, we were able to arrange to meet and after my meetings I drove to her barn, got to love on her GORGEOUS mare Sugar, and watched some of a dressage clinic that was being given by Niall Quirk. Quirk is a former Irish national dressage champion and a well known clinician, specializing in teaching flatwork to jumpers and training event riders up to the 4* level.
HOW COOL IS THAT??!!?? As you can tell, I'm still smiling a day later.
