This weekend has been all about packing. This coming week, Koda and I are heading down to the closest eventing clinic and event to us (6 hours south of us) for a week of clinics and a competition on the weekend. I've gone to this clinic last year and it was good, but I didn't really click with that certain clinician. This year I'm riding with one of the clinicians we rode with in Red Deer a couple weeks ago, so I'm pretty sure it'll be a good experience. I really love this clinic since it's a three day clinic, then you can go straight into the event. For Koda and I, it's perfect since we have no place to school cross country, so here we can school it and roll straight into the event all in one trip. Saves time, saves $$$ on gas, and gives us that event exposure we desperately need.
I personally really like the course since it's not just jumps spread out through a big field but is more through the woods, winding through different areas including going on the race track! Last time out I bunked in with a friend of mine, but they won't be able to get the trailer this year so camping out we go! I love camping, but this will be the first time I've camped solo. Since I'll be out there for a week, I'm bringing the big 4-man tent with me instead of the lighter 2-man we use for backpacking. Though, with camping brings more packing and more lists. We have the clothing list, the riding/show clothing list, the camping list, and Koda's packing list! Much to do, but loving the lists. They've been keeping me busy since it has been pouring all weekend and our riding area/arena is an absolute mess.
Next post will hopefully be from the clinic!
Hope y'all had a great weekend :)
