I had a great lesson on Friday but before I get into that I went to the $100,000 Grand Prix at the Del Mar National Horse Show with Alex the following night. L.Williams was there with her barn, Carey from Me Jump Pretty One Day was a couple rows in front of us, Susan from Saddle Seeks Horse, and One Bud Wiser was also there. We could have had a blogger meet up! But it seemed like we were all busy with our own plans. Also, I’m so bad with names that I only listed them if it was easy to find on their blogs. Haha…Alex did a write up on the whole event, so I won’t go into too much detail.There were a ton of nice horses and we showed up early to watch a couple classes before the big event. We stopped by Noble Outfitter and I almost bought a belt but they didn’t have the color I wanted in my size. We also stopped by SmartPak and I bought three saddle pads.
They also had a retirement ceremony for Flexible. He was such a nice horse and a real ham. He knew when and where to look for photos. What an old pro.
I had a lot of fun despite the unseasonable weather and learned a lot about hunter and jumper classes. I will definitely be attending more of them.
