Special Olympics horse show
Saturday, October 27, 2012
So today we finally had the horse show we've been preparing for! It was awesome! The turnout today was just unbelievable! Soooo many more supporters than last year!
My girl rode in the first independent class. She was the 5th rider in the class. Her freaking horse decided to try to eat the flags! Her instructor came over to grab the flags away from the horse so he had to stick his nose in the bucket to look for something else! Ugh! Then she was so distracted by that and by the crowds and me standing there taking pictures that she knocked down a pole taking a tight turn. She ended up placing last in her class. My poor baby girl. She told me she wants to move away to somewhere nobody knows what happened because she's so embarrassed. I tried telling her how proud I am of her and how her placement doesn't matter to me but she was so disappointed
By the time we left I was so beat I just wanted to go home but she really wanted to go to my parents' house for dinner. So we went over there for a while and Mom and Dad made tacos (my girl's first choice almost always!). I found a can of tuna and some multigrain bread
When we got home I realized I'd only had 2 cups of water, walked less than 2000 steps, and hadn't had a workout all day! Well, 40 minutes of jogging in place
and 6 cups of water later I felt a whole lot better
But now it's almost 1130 pm and I still have a task to finish before bed so I'm going to move on with that and then
