Joy and Augustus—the year of preliminary

On Sunday– Gus, Elizabeth, Kate, Wade, and I headed to Twin Towers for our first xc schooling of 2009.  I expected Gus to be crazy with all of the high winds, but he was completely relaxed.  It was almost eery how calm he was!  Anyway, I assumed we would be all rusty and our timing would be rotten, but we hopped over some BN and Novice fences with ease and started in on some work on the bank complex.  He was fantastic.  I got to look around at the prelim. fences and just get back into the swing of things.  I kept it really low key because Gus is not quite in galloping shape after his winter of dressage.  We are riding in a jumping clinic this weekend with Robin Walker, and in a cross country clininc with Leslie Law in April.  I am looking forward to an exciting summer of Prelimimary!
