June did not pan out the way I expected. I came so close to selling Dancer on two separate occasions, and both fell through (through no fault of the horse). I found him the perfect home with a friend of a friend, but she was still reeling from the loss of her last horse and decided she wasn't in a place to commit to a new one just yet. At the beginning of June, Dancer moved home for the month.
We had a bunny come in for adoption at work.
Speaking of the clinic... I made the decision to take a promotion, a raise, and more hours instead of walking away (which had been my original plan).
I did a lot of trail riding with Ozzy. My best friend came down and we took him and JR out for a few hours. We figured out a lot of the missing pieces out on trail. Shortly after that, I was able to create a ten mile loop right out of the back gate!
We got a really sweet little dog named BQ at the clinic. Nobody wants to adopt her because she has stretched out nipples, but she's really the best dog in the world.
Speaking of dogs, I got to take my own two walking in the Sourlands a few times. I'm loving having a park so close to the apartment! I think the dogs like it too
Mike and I also went to a local rodeo, the benefits of which went to many charities. We had a great time just relaxing and watching all the events.
I went to Virginia for the Old Dominion LD. It was a tough, but beautiful ride. My friends from WV and MD were there and we had a great time hanging out! JJ and I finished in the top ten and I was thrilled.
I went to a dressage show to support some of my friends in both the English and Western classes.
Mike and I spent some time relaxing and enjoying our digs. I really love living here.
I started Booger, the three year old filly I've been working with, under saddle. She's been AWESOME. I even started ponying her out on trail with JR.
We went to upstate NY for me to compete with Steel in the Brookfield 30 mile CTR. It was Steel's first ride at this distance and she was AWESOME.
Unfortunately, that weekend ended in disaster. We drove all the way to NY and back (600 miles round trip) without an issue and got hit by a drunk driver on the way into our driveway. He then fled the scene! Thankfully, he left behind his insurance card so we know who he was. I get the feeling a lot of July will be spent dealing with the fall out...
Never a dull moment around here!
