Last weekend, GunDiva honored Autobot and myself with tickets to a horse vaulting event. Autobot's mom and I both thought that was a fancy name for trick riding - and was quite concerned about the future welfare of her oldest daughter's horse desires. Not so. Horse vaulting - as it was explained to us - is a combination of dance and gymnastics on top of a horse. For this, large broad-backed horses are chosen. For this event the four horses were a 18.3h Belgian, a 17h Belgian/Quarter horse cross, a 18.1h Percheron and for the smaller vaulters, a 13.2h. Halflinger ... and this is what they do with them ...
We also had dinner included, plus a silent auction and a live auction. GunDiva came home with two buckets of horse treats and I ended up with another, so our horses ought to really enjoy this summer.
On the home front, Reba the new lodge dog is starting to show her true colors; the personality is really coming through.
Bionic Cowgirl - who misses her horses terribly!
