Sometimes an opportunity comes along the you never expected in this lifetime. That is what has been given to me. An opportunity to take my horse to Florida and show this winter. In a million years I never thought this would be my life. For 25 years I have had my business and watched as so many have headed south for the winter. But now I am going to be one of those very lucky riders who gets to travel to Florida and show on the weekends! It still doesn’t seem real to me, but it actually is! I am so excited I can hardly believe it! As I start to make plans for the upcoming winter season, I am a combination of overwhelmed and excited (and mildly terrified-the first time I show Ollie will be in Wellington Florida!)
I will be doing what so many adult amateurs do, juggling work and home life with traveling back and forth to Florida to horse show. It may be a balancing act but it is one I am so excited to experience. So for all of you who have never thought something like showing in Florida would ever happen in your life, I have one thing to say, following your dreams and believe anything is possible!
