The second show – So here we are – up early.
The usual routine – brushing.
Pushing them out into the show ring.
Waiting in line to be next.
Watching everyone do their very best.
Getting dressed, ready to go in.
Making sure everything is just right.
In the ring and hope you impress the judge.
Having a bit of a lie down.
Picking the right bit of tack for the right pony and its handler.
Running up and down.
Going round and round with a foal in tow.
Mother and daughter.
Watching on the sidelines.
So it was all worth it – very worth it. Floss never stopped. She worked so hard getting everyone ready. Me, again, on numbers and general bossing everyone around.
All worth it.
Exhausted. Drinking gin. My birthday x
