The WoSJ guest blogger; Reed Kessler - part one

Thursday, 14 February 2013

Soraya and Cylana next to each other- they are cousins and both out of mares by Skippy. Hi everybody! I'm very happy to be back as guest blogger. WEF is just starting to heat up as we have our first week above 2 star finally! I will do Cylana in the World Cup and Onisha and Mika in the other ranking classes.

Wednesdays and Thursdays are always the craziest here at WEF because there are so many classes in so many rings. It was also incredibly hot today but I doubt we will get much sympathy as most of your are probably in freezing cold weather and for that I'm very sorry!

I did my two new horses in the 1.40 first thing this morning. Soraya finished second she was so great! I changed to a bit more bridle and she was super. She has a really unusual style and twists a lot- but she is crazy careful and quick. I did Wolf and he was very fresh after having two weeks off! He jumped great but had a late rail- we are still getting to know each other. I also showed two horses that Katie bred herself. Quality did the 1.35 and finished third, she is the cutest- really small and fast! Red white and Blue is just 8 and he did the 1.30 and was double clean and I think 5th maybe... Onisha did the 1.45 ranking class and jumped very well- I had an early rail which was my fault so I didn't go too fast after that.

My rescue puppy Carly! She was pretty tired at the end of the day too.The day was really busy and we just finished at the show at 5:45 so I rushed off to the gym at 6. I was quite tired but I managed to drag myself there. Tomorrow is another hectic day. Soraya and Wolf will do the 1.45 national class in the morning, Cylana and Mika will do the WEF (our second biggest class besides the Grand Prix), and Quality and Redwhite will do their classes.

It is also Valentine's Day and there is a lot of tension in the barn between the boys. Flight insists he is my Valentine but so do Mika, Goose, and Pacha- Wolf only just got here but he insists he is the most beautiful so it should be him too. Normally my Dad will get me something and pretend it is from one of the horses- it is so hard to choose, I love all of my boys!
