Hi Everyone!I just wanted to give a quick update before I leave for Aiken. With snow on the ground, I decided now was a good time to get some work done on my computer.For the past few years, I’ve only been able to go south for one to two weeks at a time. Being the primary caretaker for my barn in Maryland, it’s hard to leave for any extended period of time … but I’ve been able to make it through, thanks to my indoor arena and some creativity.

Event riders are given the opportunity to rest their horses, take some much needed time off, or focus solely on training work at home. All of which can become incredibly dull without a goal to strive towards during the break.
