I can honestly tell you that last weekend while getting Biasini to the show and watching Lynsey ride him through two tests, I did not think”Gosh I wish I was showing”.Not once. It never even crossed my mind. I should be clear that I have done lots of showing in dressage for over 20 years. Five different horses over those years. I have shown Biasini in the Prix St.George and the Intermediare 1.We have done well and we have also done not so well depending on the day. This June I will be 74 years old. And I had a grand time just watching my horse .Just watching.
But what does all this mean for the future? Will I go into the show ring again? I doubt it.Not just because I cannot ride my horse as well as Lynsey but because I don’t have the desire to show. If I did I would have felt that over the two days of being at the show. It is not something that beckons to me anymore.
I go to lots of shows to take photos for my blog. And it is not like I am giving up. I am listening to the voice in my head and it isn’t saying. “I would l love to be in this show.”
So there you have it.
Biasini and Lynsey in the ring.
Lynsey ,Biasini, and Super Groom Lexi get ready to head over to the warmup.
I’d love to hear from you!
