Of not leaving the yard, nearly loosing H, allowing broken bones to heal & surviving the floods.....tomorrow will be our 1st competition!
Today we also jumped for the 1st time in 6 months. Yes we were slightly rusty, rather wild & very enthusiastic (in H's case particularly!).
Today wasn't big, and tomorrow probably won't be either but do long as we both have fun & come out the other side in one piece this time- we'll have made progress from where we finished off in 2015!
So tonight the nerves & excitement have already started to creep in. The 'should I just wrap him up in cotton wool' thoughts have crept in, but then I remenber how he was this afternoon- squealing over a trotting pole & remember life's too short for that sort of attitude!
So wish us luck!
The neck strap, hip flask & waterproofs are packed & the panic of finding an old pair of beige breeches has been after realising my good pair got ripped & blood stained on our last outing!
Luckily a substitute pair have been found so no one will be subjected to having to see me wear the emergency white pair!!!!
That's certainly a sight no one wants to see on a Sunday!
