The A List
The boys may have been convinced there were monsters in the international ring today... but I still had a blast. It was a pretty surreal and amazing experience - after watching numerous live-streams from this ring on my laptop in my living room, I still can’t really believe I got to jump around it today with the boys.
👑👑👑 My mom is flying in today with Ollie 🎉 so maybe I’ll be able to vlog a little bit over the upcoming weeks because I know I’ve been slacking in that department. 🤞 Also, I need to know, what does WEF do with all of the... ferns and shrubbery once the show is over? Like are they up for grabs or do they just throw them away?! So. Many. Plants. Cam tries to eat them nonstop. Waiting to go into the ring? He grabs a mini palm tree and almost pulls it over. Walking out from the jog? He tries to grab a bite of fern and then interrogates the ribbon lady for treats. Thankfully he hasn’t tried to do it while we’re on course or flatting. He pretty much knows work is work. 🤣 • • • #ececam #wef #canadianwarmblood #hunterhorse #hunterjumper #horseshow
A v handsome tot 🍟
Jogged 7th with Tater and 8th with Cam in the first trip and 9th and 10th in the second (with scores of 84 and 83 🤣) Cam was 7th in the hack. I was first in the ring this morning but had the time of my life and am so proud of the boys for hanging with some seriously tough competition. Excited for hunter week next week!
It’s so easy to get caught up in the scores, ribbons and points. But at the end of the day, I’m still smiling ear to ear having the opportunity to ride and show these amazing boys & learn something new everyday thanks to @enrite_farm. Thanks for capturing @annegittinsphotography @bridgeness, I love this photo so much. ♥️
I’m starting to enjoy the handy courses, they kind of take me back to my eq days. Tater and I did lots of trot jump practice today, for some reason I have such an easier time with them on Cam vs Tot. Practice practice practice! • • • #ececam #horseshow #canadianwarmblood #hunterhorse
