Yesterday at Pine Top was glorious, although long. I’m talking 4 am to 10 pm long…..so forgive me if this links post doesn’t make any sense! I got to finally run around a cross country course with my big horse, Nyls, and the feeling of riding him over jumps is one that I’ll never tire of. I saw lots of friends, and caught up with them and their big time horses. There were some exciting new and returning faces out there, including Boyd’s new ride Shamwari 4 and Allison riding her old partner Arthur, who was very happy to be out in his element again after a year away from competition. More photos coming tomorrow!
