Cheers! Last weekend was fun and filled with horse events. Saturday was a beautiful riding day ending in a drive to Raleigh to attend the 2012 HOY awards gala. Then , Sunday morning, an early drive to Pinehurst to judge a show. This is the first show of the new year to incorporate the half points in the tests. The show inspired some thoughts I would love to share with you all. However, that will have to come a little later because my quick lunch break will not facilitate that much writing. The sun has broken through the clouds and my fingers are nice and warm again, so I need to get back outside. For now, here are a few pictures from the Gala 2012 taken by Gavin or Daryl Taylor.
