Lovely weekend at Rocking Horse HT Fall show!

The girls and I decided a road trip was in order this past weekend. 2 of my barnmates and I loaded up at decided to take in the rated show going on in Altoona.

This is the "Marsh". It caused a lot of anxiety in many of the horses. I don't think it will be an issue with John!

I love Rocking Horse's  cross country course. Its amazing and we are so lucky to have a facility of this calliber available to us!

Through the trees!

 Woo Hoo!
This rider quickly worked it out and finished the water jump beautifully! How exhilarating just watching!
 Jonathan Holling was there. He is down to earth and lovely to work with. John had a lesson with him at his farm a year ago and he was fun while being educational.
We watched some dressage and most of the cross country. It was brisk! I never seem to dress appropriately for Altoona and about froze to death in the wind. It was worth it though. I am inspired to work my behind off and compete here December 3rd! I am shopping for an eventing vest and I need a new set of reins. What I can't buy and really really need..... is time to ride!
