It’s Fair Hill week, one of my favorite times of the year! Of course the weather here is anything but typical for early October (yesterday’s 80 degrees, rain, and 95% humidity was disgusting…). Still, I cannot wait for this week!
Sunday I had the fun and (mostly) frustrating experience of helping set up the dressage rings for Thursday and Friday. All I can say is when it’s drizzling, windy, and all you have is tape measurers and NO LASER, it’s nearly impossible to line everything up.
Especially the corners.
And when you can’t have any gaps in the boards on the judge’s side, things get interesting…
Just saying. Straight lines and right angles are hard.
And they shouldn’t allow perfectionists and anal people to work on these things either…
Next Sunday I’m on jump crew for the CCI 3*. If you’re in the area and wish to volunteer, there are plenty of opportunities still available. Perks of volunteering include free admission for the entire weekend.
