River Glen Revisited

As I posted last week, this past Saturday and Sunday was the River Glen summer horse trials here in Knoxville....and, my BFF Kelsey brought her sweet Pirate up from NC to run the Intermediate division. I was busy as her groom on Saturday morning, and then as the trusty, friendly warm-up steward for XC on Sunday, so I didn't get a lot of pictures or video, but here's some of what I did get. With cloudy skies on Saturday and cloud-cover most of Sunday morning, we lucked out and had decent temperatures for what is usually a scorcher down here by the river. I think everyone had a great weekend and I saw lots of smiling faces. Looking forward to seeing everybody again soon at AECs next month!

Pretty, pretty Pirate!

the few with less than 10 faults in the Int. division).

Appy eventer friends!

Nope, not Eddie. Up close, it's clear that Eddie has never been this
well-groomed in his life!

The reward after a hard-working weekend: It's boat-time in Tennessee!
