Originally, I was to participate at the Gulf Coast Arabian Horse Club Christmas show. Traditionally, I had competed in this show every year. I always look forward to it. Why? Well, usually it was the first show I participated in, in anticipation of the upcoming spring show season. This is a great show! Lots of gorgeous horses, a chance to catch up with “horsey friends” Santa Claus, and of course the GCAHC Christmas dinner and silent auction. All in all, it usually is a fun-filled and competitive show and the weather is always unpredictable, in Texas anything goes, so that usually adds an element of surprise! Ha!
Most of the clients at Optimum were too busy for December, so we just decided to show at the January HAAS show in Katy instead. This is always a great show too! Karen makes beautiful garlands for the winner. The added bonus for this show this January is we will be showing under 2 judges which means double pleasure! and double points!
Let me introduce you to “Supreme Chance” – he is my show partner. He is a gorgeous, extremely tall Half – Arabian Hunter Horse. He certainly gives me that “winning feeling.”
Back, to the four day weekend, as you know I had originally dedicated this weekend to the GCAHC show. Have no fear! Now I have lots of other exciting activities planned. Instead, I will go to Optimum for a riding lesson with Chance and a visit with Megiddo at LRPH. Then, I plan to drive to Austin for a “Cochlear Recipients” Reception from 6pm to 8pm. Then, finally, drive home to Bryan, Tx a mere two hours away! Whew! What a full day. Friday, head on to Tomball, to hang with Mom. Xmas shopping? xmas baking? perhaps? Saturday, I will go and visit and hang out at the GCAHC show and of course, eat some great food at the banquet! Can’t miss that, right! Finally, Sunday, go to church at the coolest church in Houston – FOTW and finally, off to the Annual Houston Hearing Loss Association Christmas Party that afternoon.
I am certainly ready for those days off because I work for Academy Sports and Outdoors in College Station as the Apparel Manager and things are certainly crazzzzzzzy there!!!!! Xmas is totally in the air and whatever ails the economy, it is not affecting us at Academy!!!! It is extremely busy and hectic which is good, because it makes the day go by fast!
Have a sunny day!
As always Susanna
