The rain has finally come to California. It blasted us hard all day Saturday which meant for me, no riding and a chance to go do “regular people things”, like hit the grocery store. Of course, these things can only be accomplished after a stop at the barn. There’s nothing quite like tromping through the aisles with unidentified barn muck on your boots and pony snot all over your favorite barn jacket. As I headed to the check out, I noticed that the last person in line was sporting black knee high boots, tan pants and tweed coat. As I drew closer I realized she was merely sporting the Equestrian Look and not One Of Us. I stood in line behind her for a moment fiddling with my phone while she gave me a once over out of the corner of her eye. I had to smirk when she sort of side stepped to put some distance between the two of us. I guess she didn’t realize that barn-funk is needed if you really want to complete the ensemble.
Events This Weekend:
Sunday Video: Pierre Doriola – an Olympic feat that has survived over 50 years. Until the start of the Rio 2016 Olympics, no other equestrian jumping athlete will have won two individual Olympic gold medals
