As I prepare to devour mountains of delicious food with various members of family tomorrow (and friday too), I am reminded of how thankful I am to be where I am today.

I am so grateful for the people I work with, you supported my crazy hours when O needed to be soaked, walked, and vetted time after time this summer.

I am so grateful for my amazing parents, who pushed back on the veternarians, the trainers, and even me when I wanted to give it all up.

I am so grateful for my trainer for continuing to believe in my little bay mare.

I am so grateful that even though the future ahead is a complete mystery, I’ve had the chance to own this special horse for a year now.

And I am so grateful for this blog community which has offered advice, support, and a refuge to share my dreams, fears and hopes! You guys are great.

Finally…I am so lucky to have a wonderful husband, while he doesn’t quite get the whole equestrian thing yet, wants to support me in everything I do.
