Garden State

Well, I just got back from the Garden State Horse Show yesterday! It was tiring, but fun!
Carlo was GREAT! He did everything we asked of him, and a couple of things we didn't!
The only time he got crazy was when horses almost ran into him during the schooling sessions, and when a horse came at him head on, even though it was on the other side of the fence.

My mom rode him in the Pre-Schooling Hunter division on Thursday. I schooled him on Friday. Then on Saturday, I rode him in the Children's Equitation Division, which, contrary to other shows, ish only 2'3" at GS.
Then my mom rode him in the Pleasure classes, which are all flat.
We had a lot of fun, and the weather was really nice.
While we did some shopping there we found Mackenzie's Belts, that sells all sorts of handmade stuff. ((www.mackenziebelts.com)) and I found a belt buckle that matches my cloak clasp!!
Then I saw it in purple. I pointed it out to my mom, and said, "Look! It's my cloak clasp! If only it was on a green and purple belt, it would be perfect!" Next thing I know, Mackenzie came over, and put it on a green and purple belt. Well, that was it! We HAD to get it!

Right now I really need to catch up on my sleep. Not only from the horse show, but from the play a couple of weeks ago.

On another hand, I've only got 'bout 3 weeks of school left!!!
Then it ish onto summer! But, I have to get a job to help pay for Carlo this summer... but all ish well, I'm hoping to get an evening job, so I can still spend my days out at the stable with Carlo.

Well, I'm gonna go now... so... tired... *yawns*

Roh, for the life of me, I cannot remember what your clasp looks like. *sheepish smile* Could you remind me?

That's awesome about the belt though. You should give a cloak and belt of that color to Lucy. :P Just make sure she doesn't loose it listening to oatmeal or making small talk with one of those talking squirrels. :P

It is the three horses, in a circle, surrounded by a Celtic knot.

As for that idea, Me Likey!!!
I will do!
