Time for my monthly recap.
September started out with me finding out I'd been exposed to a rabid cat at work and undergoing prophylactic treatment. Awesome. So many needles...
I started my landlord's stallion. Because of the weather, I only got five sessions in over the course of the month, but I wound up sitting on him in that time, so he's coming along.
Mike and I went snorkeling and I got a new camera that allowed me to take under water photos.
My old sale horse, Dancer, went to the Colonial Classic Championships in Harrisburg with his new girl, who is 13.
I got to give lessons on CP, my favorite pony of all time.
Herbie got snugglier as the weather cooled.
I went to NY and rode 55 miles in the pouring rain with Fleuron. It was my first time competing him and he was awesome. We crossed the finish in 15th out of 40 riders, but he cramped at the final vetting thanks to an absurd wait.
We went away to the Adirondacks for an extended weekend. We took the scenic chairlift, ate a ton of food, drank four gallons of sangria, jet skied, went swimming, and played lots and lots of board games and card games. It was awesome. Plus, Herbie learned to dock dive.
I assessed JR's soundness and rode him for the first time in six months. He's still off, but Ozzy tried to join in on our lunging session and it was adorable.
Mike went to a bachelor party so I took the dogs hiking in the Sourlands.
And so we enter the final quarter of the year. Bring it on!
