….When your horse is bouncing off the walls in the dressage
and then you walk back to the barn and everyone asks how your test went.
…When you’re getting counted down in the start box
and then your horse jumps the course like a total boss.
…When you get to the competitor’s party and see all the friends you haven’t seen in forever and there’s free wine
and then your friends are gone and the wine is empty and you still need to walk your horse but you can’t remember which barn he’s in
When they decide to drag the stadium warmup right before your division starts…
and then people keep cutting you off to the jumps.
…When you get home late from the event and have to go to work the next day
but you secretly can’t wait to do it all over again.
