  • One morning I had to wake up at 2:30 A.M. and go to the barn where I was boarding my horses. When I arrived at the barn I had to get my horse ready and with all of that it took me an hour to do, then I put the blanket on my horse Pebbles and he got loaded on to the trailer, “off to the show” . When we got to the show we unloaded horses off of the trailer, and got on my horse .
    When it was time to show it was already 8:25 A.M. and I was already feeling like I was going to collapse. In my first round I was jumping and I got an all clear round with no faults . I then went in for my second round and got another all clear.
    Then the round with the biggest jumps I got to the ring and started over the first jump that was a small oxer and then over the x - vertical and then the roll top then the final two jumps my horse refused at the second to the last and I fell off, I had been disqualified! Although I was disqualified and still laughing, I still had an amazing day.

    Crouch, Lillian
