First Show of the Season!

March 7, 2013

Next week, Stepping Stone is off to Clemson, SC for the first show of the year.  This is my favorite show.  The show management is always glad to see you and they are always appreciative that I come.  This is very nice as we go to a lot of shows during the year that the management could care less whether you are there or not.  The office staff is super nice and very efficient.  It is put on by the American Saddlebred Horse Association of the Carolina’s.

All that being said, I am usually ready for show season to end to be able to recharge to get ready for the next year.  Now I am body clipping, unpacking trunks and repacking trunks and making lists of what I need to be organized and ready.  Truck is serviced and ready and horse trailer is getting serviced as we speak. Hotel reservations are made. However, it never fails that I forget something!  As long as it’s not catastrophic, like a horse, there are stores in Clemson that certainly can help me out!  I tend to forget that when I’m travelling!

The horses themselves have been vaccinated, had coggins pulled, their teeth floated and the farrier is working hard to get their show shoes back on.  Now it’s time to wash their blankets and get their show halters out and cleaned.  It’s almost like getting ready for Christmas!  The horses also know when show season is approaching.  One of the wonderful things about Saddlebreds is that they love to show!

I’m ready for show  season.  Are you?
