A year ago today the most amazing creature ever entered my life! Today he jumped out of his skin and finished 4th in the $40,000 Grand Prix de Santa Fe!!! It was a very competitive class and congrats to Wallstreet RC on the win! So thrilled to have even been double clean in this class without stirrups, little did I ever think I would pin in the top 6!!! Thank you too everyone who came to watch and support me and thank you to my amazing parents and sponsors!
Whether you’re hanging your stirrups up completely or just dropping them more regularly, Happy No Stirrup November!
