This past Sunday was my riding school’s end-of-the-year show, and despite the rain, we had a pretty decent turn-out and a lot of fun. Thankfully it only drizzled on and off during the morning, which allowed us to do the costumed jumping show. I actually didn’t originally intend to participate, but a little urging from Fred and a quick rummage through my closet found me signed up and dressed up. While waiting for my turn, I took a few pictures of the others:
Apparently Naika and I are having some communication issues. Oh well. I did eventually get her to jump all the jumps, and I didn’t fall.
There was more in the afternoon (vaulting and dressage routines and such), but I didn’t get any pictures – no good ones, anyway. I’d handed off my camera when it was my turn to jump, and the girl I gave it to handed it off to someone else, who then left it by the jumping arena – in the pouring rain. Not surprisingly, the lens got all fogged up and the few pictures I took were very blurry. Thankfully, there was no permanent damage, and Tuesday I was able to grab these gems while heading downtown:
I was greeted by Lucy when I got back:
Or maybe lunch. Yes, definitely lunch.
