For some reason, the World Equestrian Games coming to town has inspired me to make lofty plans. It’s so neat to see all of the teams when you go to the grocery store at night… The world has descended upon our little town! Feeling inspired, I sat down to enter horse trials for the fall. When we lacked any horse trial in our area in September, I had a few options to choose from…. Nearby Georgia, or Virginia perhaps, or next door to Ohio. But NOOOOO, for some reason I was feeling gallant, and mailed entries to Otter Creek HT, which is in WISCONSIN. Not even the near part of WI, but rather we are practically going to St Paul, Minnesota. EEEK!
The girls and I embark on our trip at 2am tomorrow morning, aiming to driving more than 1500 miles round trip. Even better, my truck just managed to get out of the shop at 6pm the night before, so I’ll be driving on pins and needles half way across the country.
I’m sure it is going to be a great weekend, and I’ve heard it’s a lovely event… But I can’t help but laugh at myself for such a lofty expedition! I won’t have internet access this weekend, but you can keep up at

And I’m sure we’ll post some updates as a response to this post. Till then, have fun, keep your fingers crossed for us, and I tip my big ol’ glass of Red Bull to ya!
