Team Taco-- Comeback Coming Soon!

Hello again, Team Taco fans.  The long-awaited competition comeback is fewer than three weeks away!  I have entered Chattahoochee Hills at Novice. And we have a little jumper show this weekend to get us warmed up.

We've had a productive year, with our usual lessons from Amy, clinics from Heather Gillette and Kyle Carter that got us leaving home and practicing our skills. Plus Lainey Johnson paid us a lovely visit.

And we enjoyed hanging out at home too.

The main reason we did not compete last fall was due to heavy time demands at my job, and the fact that I have not been able to ride more than 3 days per week since August.  Thanks to Amy, Taco has stayed fit, but me... not so much.  Luckily I went to Florida last week so that Heather could help me get into shape.  I rode her former Advanced horse, Groovy, a delightful gentleman.

Which brings us to now. Amy gave us a great jumping lesson last weekend, and our jumping "lesson" this coming Saturday will be at the schooling show! Here we come 2013!
