Buckle up for a long post. I thought about breaking it into 2 but decided to subject you to the whole story.
Last weekend Carmen and I headed off to our first show since 2019. I was quite excited and felt really positive about it. We arrived Friday around lunch time. We had booked an hour in the warm up ring and Jane put her three students together so she could coach us and then prepare for her own show. It was interesting to share the ring. I was riding first, Tanya second and Nicole third. Carmen seemed pretty relaxed on arrival. Throughout the whole show horses were coming and going and she didn't care at all.
