Today was one of those days where I didn’t want to leave the house because I’m right in the middle of a drastic decluttering and I really wanted to finish it today. I’m busy for the next week and a half so this was my last chance to get some things done.
But we had a few events going on and I wasn’t sure that I wanted to miss them. One was an award banquet for my daughter and the other one was going to a national show horse barn to see a demonstration about different riding disciplines.
I decided that we needed to have fun and not let the hoard hold us prisoners! I think I made the right decision.
We got to see this:
The demonstration was awesome but then afterwards, we were able to go walk around the barn and got to see one of them training a few of the horses. It was fabulous. They have a huge indoor round pen where they do the training which is great. He said that they even train the horses to drive in that round arena. I wish that I had one of those for working with my mini horse!
After we left that barn, we went to our barn and helped clean and got the horses in for the night. We couldn’t take our horses out though because there was ice everywhere. It would have been too dangerous trying to walk them to the arena so we just got to say hi to them and that’s it. After watching that demonstration, we really wanted to work with our horses a little bit.
We got home late but I was able to do quite a bit. My son did a lot by himself before I got home so he is officially moved into the other bedroom now. The smaller room is now the new storage room and it’s about half way full. I still have one more room full of stuff that needs to go in there and then we’ll be able to move pretty freely through the whole house, all except for that room, the basement and the garage but it will be awhile before I get to those.
