Long Weekend in Numbers

Hope everyone had a good Labour Day Long Weekend! I spent it in the best way possible: at a dressage clinic!

Weekend in Numbers:

380 - km of driving over 3 days (barely anything compared to normal!)
20 - minutes spent in two-point in my first lesson, my dressage legs aren't used to that!
14 - clinic participants
10 - failures to get a conformation shot, at least

Some of the outtakes

8 - the stirrup hole my stirrups were change to
7 - pocketfuls of treats given to my awesome mare
3 - number of lessons I had this weekend
3 - times I got stopped at rail crossings for 100+ car trains

You know it's a big train when there are 6 engines at the front!

2 - hours that Kachina stood perfectly in the barn at the clinic so I could watch other rides
2 - tight maneuvers required to get my trailer turned around in the small driveway of the host barn

Halfway through one maneuver - backing up between two other rigs

Not a whole lot of room to spare
(the other side was equally close)

1 - great clinic - ride recaps to come


  1. Sounds like a fun weekend! Can't wait to hear more :)

  2. Awesome! Excited to hear the recap :)

  3. Pretty sure my trailer would either still be in that parking lot or someone would have had to turn it around for me. I'm excited to hear about the clinic.
