As soon as I flip the calendar from February to March, my brain immediately goes into horse show planning mode. During the winter I don’t dare let myself think too seriously about an upcoming show season schedule for fear that it will make the cold months feel that much longer. But once March rolls around I tell myself that it’s completely permissible to start marking up my calendar with every event that I think I might want to hit.

Up here in Area I I’ll still have to wait until the end of April for the recognized events to start, so I’ll have to wait a while longer still to actually leave the start box, but I do love putting pen to paper and scheming about the spring and summer months. It’s funny how just getting through February makes the upcoming season that much more tangible!
