Tipperary’s Saturday Links

Today kicked off the Southern Pines II Horse Trials.  The high was around 55, and the skies were blue.  It wasn’t as warm as is customary here, but it was better than what they are calling for in the next two days.  I have to send a huge thanks to fellow EN writer, Kate Samuels, for not running me over on the cross country course.  I may or may not have walked right in front of her has she was galloping around the Training.  I was so focused on walking my Advanced course, I didn’t hear her coming!  I think her little mare must be super light on her feet!
