I think the title says it all. My dressage has gone down the tubes. It's been a sinking ship, but luckily I have all winter to practice. It is that time again and soon I will be confined to our 20 meter circle indoor. But that's good because my dressage is nowhere near good enough for Championships next year, and speaking of which....
Talks are going around that they might just get rid of Champs after 2009 because of expanses, and even if they don't take it away they are going to condense it which takes away from the whole experience. Expense problems and the lack of cash flow is making it tough, but I thought it wasn't fair at all that all the grown ups were making the decisions about OUR Champs, so I started a Facebook group for all people who want it to stay. We have about 60 right now, but I'm hoping it will go up and then it will make a good case for Nationals to stay. So if there's any Pony Club members, friends of Pony Club members, or former members reading this, please join the group at the link below- Nationals is too fun to be taken away!
With that being said we are making sure that if '09 is going to be our last Nationals in this format, we're going out with a bang. We're going all out on tack room decorations, neat little
memorabilia, and stylized stall cards. We're also resurrecting our old cabinet which is big, red, and ways about 1000 pounds. It holds everything- has bridle racks on the front, saddle racks on the side, 6 shelves, and rack for jackets, and a place for boots - everything goes in. We're going to repaint it, and spruce it up. We're also going to get carpet and new curtains. That is, if I can get my affidavit next year and manage to keep Red sound(:
I guess that's all to report now! Remember to join and support Nationals!
