Reflecting on this past year…
-started with a bang when I took on a total of 70 horses to blanket/unblanket every day when a friend broke her leg.
-co-organized a fundraiser for this friend, to help cover lost wages and medical care, which raised close to $10,000.
-Competed an Intro combined test at Twin Rivers Ranch with Dawn in May, finishing on our dressage score
-Adopted my awesome dog Riley in July
-Ran a few 10k races
-Bryce and I managed to complete all 3 phases at the Woodside horse trials–not once but TWICE.
-I taught 10 weeks of Webb Ranch summer camp
-coached my students at two Webb shows.
-somehow managed to stay sane while Bryce was sick, for over 10 weeks, and very nearly had to be put down due to bacterial pneumonia.
-Went hiking in the eastern Sierras and watched the National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas.
what a crazy ride.
