Here are the shows I hope to make this season:
Donida Dressage Schooling show on February 8, March 1, and April 5
Jumpernite, Maybe; This is a really expensive schooling show. I am not convinced I want to pay so much. It is $30 a class! February 22, & March 22
April 25-27 Dressage Rally!!
May 17, Baywood One Day at NWEC. The real beginning of the season.
May 24 & 25 – EI Horse Trials at the Washington State Horse Park. I really hope I can school here first – my last XC experience here was the rather scarring technical fall at the ditch. I am still mad about that.
Then in June – Nothing! There is nothing scheduled but the Aspen Farms Horse Trial – so I guess if I don’t want to pay $500 for three rides, I just don’t get to compete in June… 🙁
But July makes up for it – Pony Club camp from July 17-21, then off to Montana to watch the Event at Rebecca on the 25-27! Best two weeks of the year!
August 2 & 3, Lincoln Creek Back to Back One Days , and the 9th is the Skagit Valley Derby – this is a maybe.
September 13 & 14, the EI back to back One Days, and Sept 27 & 28 the Lincoln Creek Event.
Wrap it all up with the Show Jump Rally October 17 – 19 — this year we have been assured Horsemasters will be able to go. Last year we got bumped, because too many PC teams went, so there was not enough space for us; so this year they are running a third arena.
If I go to all of the shows I want to, that is about 22 dressage tests, eleven Cross-Country rides, and around 10 Stadium Jumping rounds, give or take. Is that enough? I guess it will have to be.
