hi susan, hope you are well, we've had such a super weekend!!! Victory was such a good boy, we did a music quadrille with paul Hayler and 2 of his riders all of us were on young horses... V grew about 2 ft when we went onto the arena as there were about 500 people in the audience... we had a work in so they could get used to it but he didnt spook or perform...he took it all in his stride...got a bit tense and at the end when the applause started well, he really rose to the occassion, he was dancing all over the place. i must say i felt very proud to be riding with paul and the girls as they are all advanced riders and we really did well i was on such a high for hours after...ive never in my wildest dreams ever thought i'd be doing these wonderful things. ive taken the liberty of sending you a colour brochure from the night as a little keepsake from me & victory!!! im having a week off so i dont get divorce papers thrown at me ( only joking ) then we're gonna start working on getting in tip top form (hopefully) for the winters in feb 06. still find it hard to believe we've got thru to both....keep pinching myself..
well i wont bore you anymore as soon as i have the photos thru i'll e-mail some to you.
love & best wishes
