|1st world problems|
First of all, I’m alive and kicking, even though I haven’t been great with blogging over the last week and a half.
To be honest I’ve been struggling with some anxiety and depression, possibly from a recent medication change, possibly from major work drama, possibly from some family drama, most likely everything combined. Intellectually I acknowledge that my life is pretty amazing, but emotionally I’ve been very up and down. Actually, just down. Its frustrating. But I’m looking into solutions.
But back to what makes me happy: horses!
This past Sunday I participated in a Dr. Christian Schacht clinic, where I met up with fellow blogger Karen of Not So Speedy Dressage who also participated. Even with all her traveling lately she’s been great with keeping up blog posts and has even started a recap of the clinic. I’m still digesting my experience but will recap soon.

Meanwhile we’ve been having good lessons in both dressage and jumping these last 2 weeks. Hemie came away from the horse trials with a little more attitude when jumping, and a little more interest in going faster rather than slower when figuring out a jumping question.
George (my barn-mate’s horse who had the trailer incident) is doing much better. The swelling in his knee went down then came back a few times so they had radiographs taken: verdict was no bone issues whatsoever and to go ahead and start back into work while addressing the swelling. Thank you to everyone who sent positive vibes!
Our event schedule is a little up in the air right now, but I’m looking into local dressage shows. I’ve also been researching a local hunt club and might give that a shot in the next month or so.

A major rain storm is expected this week, so I’m glad I haven’t body-clipped yet. But as soon as we get a fair-weather weekend I’ll be buzzing away since Hemie HATES shedding with a passion.
