"How wild it was, to let it be." Cheryl Strayed (author of Wild)
I have a confession to make, letting go of my eventing plans for the summer has actually made me happier. I admittedly spent the first few days post-decision in a grump. However, this last week I have had more fun than I've had a while.
All the pressure I was putting on myself about show season (I have to ride "x" times a week and ARG my horse isn't sound) has been lifted. I have been enjoying my time at the barn again. Heck I'm even enjoying my time away from the barn more!
I found time to see the Wild movie with one of my closest friends. I've been struggling to carve time out for that for quite a while!

My herd is doing really well. I will be happy to have them in one place again soon! I've been making some new plans for the summer with them.
I'm taking a "Learn to Drive" clinic at the end of the month and am doing a "Stretch, Strength and Posture" clinic in April. I've left the dressage show in August on my yearly events tab for the time being. I'm hoping to convince my instructor from the dressage barn come out and teach Apollo and I when he's 100%. So we might still get out to a show yet, I will play it by ear :)
Apollo's warmest winter blanket isn't fitting him very well so I decided to pick up a new one. I will remove the hood when he's actually going to wear it. It's too warm for right now!
He is so bundled...I think he felt like this:
Mystic was given some new pink boots from a friend. She thought they were pretty weird.
