Long time gone...

Once again I disappeared off the map but this time for a very good reason.  I took over managing the boarding stable I keep my horses at.  It's my own little business and I rent the space from my neighbor.  It helps me cut down the cost of keeping my own horses but its also a ton of work. 

I want to change the format of my blog a bit to talk about what exciting things are going on around the barn but I'm also hoping to start writing stories again too.

Unfortunately, I lost December at the beginning of the year.  Her kidneys were failing and I have no idea why.  I made the best decision I could for her and had the vet put her down peacefully.  This is the first time I've had to make this decision for any of my pets and I will never be the same.  I miss her every day and I'm glad for the last year we had together and the wonderful relationship we developed.

Tax and I have been getting ready for a new show season and we're changing things up a little bit.  Most of my boarders are low level eventers and we all enjoy riding together so I'm going to give it a shot.  I've been taking dressage lessons with a wonderful trainer, Stacie Campuzano, and will be starting with a jumper trainer soon.  I'm looking forward to an amazing year.

On a very cool note one of the new girls at the barn is also a pretty damn good photographer so expect lots of pretty pictures.  See what I mean..?

A little group of us went to school on a cross-country course recently.  I'm planning to add a post about the experience shortly so stay tuned!
