|Our event year has been going very well. All of our riders reached their American Eventing Championship goals. All were grateful to have that goal fulfilled before summer vacation. We were all able to take some non horse time and enjoy our families and friends. Unfortunately, not all were able to actually compete at Nationals for one reason or another. Although they were there to support the others and attend all of the parties and that was a great team effort.
The current goal for a couple of our riders is to qualify for young riders summer of 2013. It is fun to have these kids working so hard to fulfill their dream. These days, area V is the toughest area to make the eventing team. Area V has several young, talented horse and rider combinations vying for a spot on the team. Very exciting!
Our other riders will be on a mission to qualify for the next level at the American Eventing Championsips 2013. This will take place in Texas. Finally somewhere close for us. Yeah!
We're loading up and headed back to Chattahoochee Hills again this week. Loads of big goals and dreams are on the line this weekend. It's certainly one of our favorite events. The first class facility makes being there a dream come true. We wish you all the best of luck.
Some breathing time over November will land us in Virginia for some Fox Hunting with the O'Connors. I guess Karen will be sitting this one out. Although she is on her way to recovery and she will be back eventing before you know it. There is no event rider tougher than her.
Happy Holidays! See you in Ocala
