Again a Mixed Message

Izzy was amazing today. Back to her usual, happy, willing, and fun self. I had a blast. When we finished, I turned her out in the arena to run around like a crazy pony. Then she had a blast. It was good.

The sad news is that we won't get to be in the event derby we've been gearing up for because I'm poor. That pretty much sums it up. The entry fee is out of my league and that doesn't begin to count gas, hotel, food, etc. Sigh. I really, really wanted to do it.

Oh well. That just means we'll be more prepared than ever for whatever comes next, right?


  1. Showing expenses have increased tremendously over the years. Last time I showed in a dressage show, it was over $150 just for two classes. I certainly don't miss spending the money.

    Sorry you'll miss out on your derby, but hopefully something more fun and less expensive will come along soon to make up for it.

  2. Sorry to hear you won't get to participate as you planned. Many of us out here and in the same boat. I'm thinking like you, I'll be more prepared the next time whenever that might be.
