So most of last week was spent auditing the George H. Morris Gladstone Program and reporting on it for Horse Junkies United. If you haven't had a chance to check out the coverage, you can find them all here. What an amazing experience!. I took almost 50 pages of notes! Sometimes it seemed as if every word coming out of the man's mouth was another pearl of wisdom.
So, it kinda sucks that I haven't been able to get to the barn and try out all my new knowlege. You know how it is, right? You stock up on good information and then wait for a chance to hop on your pony and be McLain Ward/Steffan Peters/Jen Alfano all rolled into one? Never quite happens that way, though, does it? I'm just hoping my brain will hang on to everything I learned long enough for me to actually use it!
In the meantime, I'm feeding the horse addiction a couple of ways....
1) Re-reading the Pony Club Manuals.
2) Watching my new DVD.
3) Trying desperately to whip Brenda Breyer into shape. I mean really, forget the lack of approved tack - what on earth is this outfit she has on? And no helmet??? Look at those heels -- she has no weight in them! Despite that she is clearly riding from front to back, as evidenced by the fact that the horse is up in the withers and his croup is lowered.
Why no, I haven't had any wine. What makes you ask?
Missed you all! MWAH!
