|team ontario's amazing golf cart!!!|
I HAVE GREAT NEWS.... i am pretty certain i lost 10 pounds today just from all the sweating... i think that was the hottest day i have ever known. At 5 am it was 35 degrees and it only got hotter from there. I am definitely suffering from some heat stroke with dehydration and a nice booming headache.
Merry had an incredible dressage school this morning and afternoon going his best ever, i am actually pretty excited for the Dressage tomorrow because of that. I go around 9:50 so everyone please cross your fingers for me! i am SO MAD but due to the heat tails and top hats have been banned so i will be doing my CCI* in a show shirt or polo... how lame and tragic is that... so upset.
Moira Laframboise from Ontario, myself from Quebec, and Rebecca from Alberta will be the only individuals competing without a team tomorrow so we plan on doing extra well to beat out all the teams :).
Merry looked magnificent at the jog today with the sun glaring down on his beautiful dapples, and he passed instantly with flying colours thank goodness! its a very nerve wracking experience to stand before the ground jury and know they could end your competition right then and there with a shake of their heads.
I got a sponsorship for free belts from a new company called C4 equestrian belts! a 100% recyclable belt made to measure. A pretty neat concept, i was honoured to even be asked! The belt i have in the pictures is the belt he gave me, blue for Quebec.
On top of everything else i had university course registration today at 1:00 pm so in between riding, jogging, course walking, and everything else i had to pick my university courses for the next year... and oh boy, put it this way, nothing they give me on cross country could possibly compare to the stress i experienced choosing those courses... give me a xc any day please.
There have been over 50 people reading this blog every day, and i just wanted to say thank you to everybody for your continued support and interest!!!! It really means a lot to me, and the team down here. I couldn't be where i am right now without the constant encouragement from all of you
DRESSAGE WE ARE READY FOR YOU
