Its hard to believe how fast time goes by. 5 years ago today my man was born! Its been a crazy fun journey so far and I am SO thankful to have had the opportunity to be able to call him mine. Now if only he could stay 5 forever!
This is the age we have been waiting for since I got him! We can now start thinking more eventing and preparing for our first recognized event next year. We really havent jumped that much so we can start getting more of that in too. We are starting lessons with an eventing trainer out at Inavale and Alanna and I will be taking a semi private XC lesson once a month until the weather gets bad (then we will just do stadium fences).
So our rough plan as of now (dont you hate growing up and having to be a big boy?!):
- Start jump lessons (and continue flat lessons)
- Take some clinics
- Get out to some derbys and/or one days
- Compete at Aspen early season next year before Inavale, then compete at Inavale also!
I cant wait to start doing some big boy stuff with him now that he is officially not a baby anymore. A happy and sad moment for sure!
