Hey everyone, sorry I didn't update last night, I was exhausted!!! You'll notice the title of this post is hip #53, and there are 53 horses going through the sale :-) Somehow we managed to draw LAST!!! I am pretty excited about that, I'm hoping that everyone will have spent all their money and won't want to wait around until the end of the auction to bid. We'll see what happens. As far as the in hand and riding patterns, I drew the 46th position for in hand and I will be 32nd in the riding course.
They made a few changes to the scoring system in this competitions since so many people were disqualified from the first event. They said no one would be disqualified in this event. That made me happy, but at the same time I wasn't real worried about going off pattern.
Well I am hoping to have someone video the in hand pattern for me, so I will try to get it posted tonight. I am not sure if the Alliant Energy Center has WiFi or not, but I am going to bring my laptop just in case.
Well, I've got to be to Madison by 7:30 am to get Remington paint branded with his number, so I am headed out now!
Wish us luck!!
