I last updated you while I was making plans for the start of summer. That was 3 weeks ago... it feels like longer, so, so much longer. So. . . . here is the short version; 》》We went x-country training which she was awesome at! We certainly did a few that were bigger than 80! [...]
Here we are the start of summer, and for this summer I am hoping to do a fair amount of going out and about. I need a plan of action not only because I need to make sure I learn the right dressage tests and Eva is fit enough but also from a financial side [...]
