Well it appears my bad luck it contagious, and we had a string of family health problems which prevented the show season I'd been hoping for. Most bizarre of which I caught a cold which evolved into a lung infection, which evolved into adult croup (yes, I know it's a disease of young children!) and with all that I broke a rib and ended up needing a significant amount of time off!
With that said I did make it to the Amberlea Meadows Summer Dressage Festival (broken rib and all) and Mel got exposure at a new venue!
We did, however have some good news amoung all the bad, and Daisy left us after 17 years to teach a new little girl the ropes! Congratulations to Dani Grey and her family, you guys got an incredible little pony! Daisy was a fantastic and loved member of our family and we hope she becomes one of yours.
Since buying Daisy we've heard that Dani and Daisy rode in their first show in the trot pole division, and placed first and second in a field of over ten other young riders- having been a team for less than a week! Watch out Alberta, these two are coming!
