Aaaack - juggling show season!
Show season officially started for me last weekend with a kickoff visit to the Mount Holyoke Schooling Show on Easter weekend.
I was supposed to visit the inlaws with my husband. But my instructor was making her Grand Prix debut at the show. Most everyone had plans. So I was (willingly) conscripted to be marketer, videographer, caterer, and groom - which left little time for blogging.
I took Friday off of work. I printed out advertising flyers and pamphlets. I packed chicken salad sandwiches (recipe), iced tea, and snacks. I bought a new video camera. I also rode Armani and went trailer shopping with my mother. Then Saturday morning I rode Armani early. Armani stared at my instructor's trailer as I was grooming him. I lead him loosely toward the arena. Armani turned and took a few steps toward the open trailer ramp. "That's not for you." I told him. He was unusually compliant and gave an extra effort as we rode. Then I guiltily took off for the show without him.
Full show report once I get the pics off my camera....
