The countdown has begun! 4 days until Georgie is in the sandbox for her prelim debut! I’m pretty excited and am getting over the fact that I won’t be riding her.
Although, I will admit I had a couple minor meltdowns the other day.
When I filled out the entry for the event they ask you for the following info: Horse info, Rider Info, Owner info, Trainer Info
Um, I am none of those things. So, in my meltdown the other day I think I said something overly dramatic like “It’s as if I don’t even exist in this horse’s life!”
I warned you about the drama, right?
The next meltdown was one I struggled with in kindergarten as well. Purple is my favorite color. It is the color Georgie and I wear on cross-country. Therefore, in my mind, everyone should love wearing purple. Purple is not Sarah’s favorite color, (at all) and she and Georgie will not be wearing purple on cross country.
“It’s like I don’t exist!” I yelled out (in a text. Probably all caps. Apparently the “not existing” is a real problem for me.)
Sarah offered to let me put her purple bling browband on for xc. To which I snarkily replied: “She doesn’t wear bling on xc. She isn’t a sissy.”
I was really channeling my inner kindergartener and I may have even put my thumb in my mouth at this point.
I’m over it now. I’m way too excited to care about colors or entry forms. I know I’m responsible for getting Georgie to this point and I know Sarah riding her and wearing navy is going to be fine. She will probably wear her purple browband though. Just ’cause.

I can’t wait to give you all updates, so be prepared and think good thoughts for Sarah and Georgie at their debut! I have zero expectations for them, only two hopes:
- At the end of the weekend they are both safe and sound.
- And if I am being greedy, that Sarah has a blast running xc and understands why I love this mare so much.
