This month, things started to turn around for us a little bit (though I'm still afraid to say anything out loud).

It was a stormy month here, with intense thunder and lightning, complete with power outages. 

Mike took a great shot of Ozzy that sums up my horse's personality.

On July 4th, we went to a party at a friend's house/barn, where I got back on a Paso Fino for the first time since my accident in 2013. I was scared to death at first, but soon, I was laughing my head off and having a great time.

I got the chance to go to Asheville, NC for the Biltmore Challenge. I rode Ozzy's half sister, Clover, in the 55. It was a hot and tough ride, but it was beyond gorgeous. It was also my first ride outside the northeast region. I was thrilled when we not only completed, but finished top ten!

I shared some updates on Ozzy and JR. Both horses are happy, but dealing with some lameness issues. JR has started IM injections of Pentosan for his arthritis (he's 17 this year), and Ozzy is having a vet out to test for Lyme following a fall on trail that unseated me two days ago.

We also had a significant amount of car trouble this month. Getting my car fixed after our accident turned out to be a major hassle. And then, Mike's big truck blew a serpentine belt, which then shredded the power steering lines. So that was fun...

We celebrated our one year anniversary with Julio.

I also wound up bringing home a cat from the clinic. His owner was throw in federal prison and the kitty was slated for euthanasia. He's very sweet and I couldn't stand to see him killed, so I brought him home to be a barn kitty. His name is Bucho.

Dancer moved to the same barn that Shadow, Clue, and Nikko are at. My client, April, took him on a half lease, which helped cover some of his costs. The very next week, an interested buyer came to see him. The rider was a very talented twelve year old girl. She jumped Dancer 2'6" the day she met him and even had him doing flying changes for her! It was love at first sight and Dancer sold, just like that. We were sad to see him go, but relieved to have one less financial burden (and one less mouth to feed). It's a great home and I look forward to hearing about their progress over the next few years.

We also had some stunning sunsets here on the mountain.

And so another month rolled by. As we speak, we're packing the car for West Virginia for our next set of adventures!

Hey Dom!
Do you do the Ride for the Cure? The manager, was talking about it (met him at the Open Space Pace last year). We're trying to set up small sects and he's trying to get the horse park involved yadda yadda, didn't know if you knew about it or would bring Ozzy :)

If you are, I'd love to see you there ! :) Hopefully I'll be there with Arianna this year!

Much luck and good tidings-

I always plan to do it, but don't always manage to get there. If it's at the Horse Park, I would definitely try to bring Ozzy (and JR!)
