Alexei’s First Gymkhana

Friday, June 29th, 2012

Last week Team *sniff* Fun Barn took over the TO Gymkhana like a street gang:

It was a fabulous day. Melissa and Zia took high point but me and Jo actually won a first against them in Speed Ball.

Alexei did three lead line events, laughing and telling me to “go fast, Mommy” all the way. I was so happy that he enjoyed the day.

Notice Alexei's stirrups - thanks to Auntie Debbie!

I had huge help from the Team *sniff* Fun Barn moms and dads with keeping the boy busy and safe while I was riding. I so appreciate my “barn family”!

Tomorrow I’ll be participating in my first SCA Equestrian event since da Boy came home. I’m excited! I hope Skullcrusher will be happy to get back to his favorite sport!




Happy Birthday, Oma
