A few of my favorite shots from the end-of-the-year show back in June:

Hello everyone!

I meant to post this much sooner, but between my new job and recent events, it kind of got pushed down the priority list (okay, and I’ve been procrastinating too).

Anyhow, December (and therefore winter) may be upon us, but these pics from June should warm you right up. They’re from the barn’s end-of-the-year show, which was a ton of fun and featured some pretty awesome costumes:

Vaulting into Summer

Three weeks ago was the barn’s annual end-of-the-year party/show. Because I had to work that day (working weekends can be incredibly inconvenient sometimes) I only caught the last 20 minutes or so of the show, but I did get some nice shots of the kids vaulting:

This kid was especially photogenic:

Afterwards, Laurelia and Lucie hopped on for a quick lap around the arena:DSC_1201cs

I’m still bummed I missed most of the show, but at least I got to see this little bit, and there was a dinner afterwards, which was a lot of fun. After a long day at work, getting to share a meal with my fellow equestrians (during which we mostly discussed horse-related stuff) was just what the doctor ordered. 🙂

April Show Pics

Last month we had our annual unofficial, just-for-fun spring jumping show, and it was a rousing success, as usual. It was a great opportunity for me to get in some practice with Mountain Blue, who is apparently my new project horse. It turns out that despite her being nine years old she hadn’t been ridden all that much or learned anything beyond the absolute basics before coming here, so we’re in the process of getting her up to speed. She’s quite the handful, but quick to learn and generally eager to please, and she’s making pretty rapid progress. I think that with a bit more work, she and I will make a great team.

Here she is before the show:

I also took advantage of the show to test my new lens (with a bigger zoom) and I’m quite pleased with the results:
