Are you listening to some now? Good. Onward!
Believe it or not, the first show of the season is next weekend. Crazy huh? Seems like show season just ended, but I for one am dying to get back out there. Last season for me did not exactly end on the greatest note from a showing perspective, but Brit and I have accomplished a lot during the short off-season and I feel like we are really ready to get back out there and kick some butt. A few members of LL Equestrian have already taken their first trip of 2014 to ride in the Hawley Bennett clinic out at Dragonfire in Wilton. This clinic, as always, was amazing. Unfortunately I am a bit strapped for cash at the moment and chose not to ride. I did get the chance to go watch, however, which is always an illuminating experience. Hawley is an excellent clinician and I would highly recommend that if you get the chance to ride with her DO IT! Dana, Adi, and Lauren (trainer, not little) all rode and I was the official videographer for the weekend.

In other news, we have finally taken down the Christmas decorations at Raintree. Well, most of them anyway. Somehow we missed the lights in the tackroom... and the wreath on the grain shed... and the stuff in the palm trees... really all we did was take down the things on the front of the barn that for some reason had been stuck up there with duct tape. Now I'm not really sure how the heck the girls got some of the things up there, but somehow they managed to wrap tinsel around the front posts of the barn. The tall ones. So how do we get the duct tape down? Well obviously you climb the pole. Now most of the girls did not think they were capable of climbing up there and I'm pretty sure most of them did not actually expect me to get all the way up there. Well you know what? I climbed that pole and I got that duct tape down. Bam! That's right. And I wasn't sore at all the next day... not even a little bit... sort of... maybe... okay. Below is my picture proof. I did actually make it all the way to the top, this was just on my descent.

Recently I learned that I have the entire soundtrack for Mass Effect 3 on my computer because apparently it came with my collector's edition of the game (heck yeah I bought the collector's edition, it is only my favorite series of all time). I started listening to the sound track and oh my God this game has the most amazing soundtrack of any game EVER. This is not up for debate. Period. End of story. I mean, just listen to this song:
So I think that is where I am going to end this post. I am going to try and do another one before the combined test next weekend. If I have enough to write about, I would like to try and make this blog a weekly thing, we will see. Until next time: watch some clinics, ride your horse, climb some poles, and listen to epic music--because you're just that awesome.
