It was a wet weekend, but I was very excited to be back in Aiken! I made the trip to Full Gallop to groom for their January HT.
They’ve made a lot of impressive changes at Full Gallop since the last time I was there. Quite a few new cross country fences made their debut including a massive ditch and brush that gave me bystander fear. But they put a lot of effort into the venue and it definitely shows!
Our group had big successes over the weekend. It was fun to cheer everyone one, even though the rain literally didn’t stop all day. Thank god it was warm.
I did also use the hours and hours of bathing the grey horse to my advantage, as it was perfect timing for some conformation shots. We all know my weakness for greys…
I will say, being back at a typical competition makes me really miss competing. I love watching and helping, but it doesn’t quite make up for not doing it yourself. Hopefully I can find myself back out there soon.
