There are lots of things happening… First off, its Horse Expo week! Yeah! Starting tomorrow our volunteer staff start moving in vendors and equipment to be ready for the big spring event. Besides working Expo, I am taking Butter this year. She will work with Craig Cameron in his "problem horse" demo. Poor Butter. Poor Craig. But the rest of the time, I'll be walking the floors of Expo making sure my schedule stays on track and answering questions and directing people to venues and kissing horses' noses.
It's also a milestone birthday this week. But hey, it's only a number. I told a good friend recently that if the second half of my life is as good as he first half, bring it on! I used to say that I didn't feel a day over 28. Well, the kids have aged me; now I don't feel a day over 32. Horses keep me young.
So heading into my “golden years”, I will keep this thought in mind (crediting Jane Savoie):
Somewhere behind the rider I've become,
The trainers who pushed me,
The people who believed in me,
The long hours of schooling,
The falls I've taken,
The ribbons I didn't win,
The tears and broken bones,
And the horses I've given my heart to,
Is the little girl who fell in love with the sport
And never looked back.
I Ride for her!
A Gift for You
Just in time for my birthday, I was contacted by CSN Stores to provide a giveaway to my readers. Is that great timing or what? I have surfed through their online store and sure wish I would have found them when I did my home makeover last year; I found flat panel TV stands which would look great in our living room. CSN Stores have offered to provide me with a $40 gift certificate to award any one of my readers. They have a ton of merchandise for you to choose from; I am sure the winner will find something to enjoy.
