|Parker making friends|
Alayne and I hosted our second indoor schooling show of the year at her farm this Sunday. I have blogged about these plenty before so I will spare you all the details - typical hunter schooling show - lots of cute ponies and kids, and some nice horses. Good turn out, a fun day. Too cold for my liking, but we were lucky to still have a decent attendance despite the horrible winter we have had. We can't really complain there.
This show was a little more special because Parker got to come, and it was his first show! He has been off property once or twice before, and was a very good boy for his first outing! He went over Saturday night and had a ride around the arena. He was fresh but still very good for Jess. In the morning when I went over before the show started he was happily resting in his stall. He had his breaky before Jess arrived, and then after some time he went out for an early morning warm up. He went right over all the fences like a brave boy and was fairly respectable, not getting too excited.

On Saturday we went to the local tack sale and I saw something I just had to get for Jess - a Pink Optimum Time watch for $40! I want a blue one, and her colours are pink and black. Too good of a deal to pass up. Alayne got a white one for the same price. Major scores for the day. Not much else at the sale unfortunately. Turned out to be a good thank you gift for showing Parker for me.
Now if we can just get the heat to turn up...I might be able to start riding a bit more at home!
