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.
so exciting!! i had a blast riding around the grounds seeing all the preparations a couple weeks ago and am super pumped for the full event! not volunteering this year but hopefully next year!
yes i didnt volunteer either but can’t wait to see you Emma, and meet Sarah and Austen and more. I did get my info for the workshop today (umm meet at the gate at 8 am okay LOL) I hope the YEH workshop is worth it i think it will be. Sarah I have your phone # Emma I have yours. STALKING COMMENCES SOON! 🙂 HA (ANd no way could i do those rings, my straight lines are evidenced in my crappy dressage scores, aint got no straight lines) 🙂
Have fun with the 8am for YEH…. I’m not getting there that early. Especially with the CCI 2* not starting until 9 or 11 now (I can’t actually remember)…
it said 10-2 when i signed up. Then now they told us 8 am LOL 🙂
Hopefully I’ll get a chance to meet you this year!
