Lexington (Re)Beginnings

So my friend Jenny didn't come with me at this point. But she is still hopefully coming the beginning of June. I have looked at apartments for us or myself if she doesn't come and have pretty much decided on a complex. Pool and fitness center is small but its clean and in good shape so definitely a plus.

Saturday evening we went to the USHJA International Hunter Derby at the Kentucky Horse Park. They had a National Hunter Derby a little earlier on but we didn't make it to that one. Hunter Derbies are my new favorite thing at the Horse Park. Free food, free beer, free wine, free entertainment = awesome. A 15yo took 1st and 2nd place and a 14yo rider took 3rd, crazy!

3:50 Sunday morning Colleen's cell phone went off. I had been awake from stupid leg cramps and everyone jumped outta bed and loaded up in car since her mare was foaling. She had her boarded at Walnut Hall to be foaled since her mare can't nurse the foal and it makes switching out to her nurse mare much easier with a bigger facility.

Pretty Filly.

Today I started the job. I only worked three hours but in that time I sat in on two meetings and fixed some past result charts that had bad data. Feels good to be back to a place I know. I was only suppose to work 27 hours this week but have already been bumped up to 38. Everything is coming back all at once which is mind blowing but I'm sure after few weeks I'll be good to go.


  1. Yippee! I bet it feels good to be back in the Bluegrass!! I'll be in Tennessee next month, I want to see you!

    Congrats Colleen on the new baby!

    1. Well we should try and find a way to meet up!

    1. Yep it was and Madison something was third.

    2. I lied after seeing Lauren's comment.. It was Tori that took 1st/2nd.

  3. I loooooooooooooove hunter derbies. In WEF, Tori Colvin took 2nd or 3rd I believe and she's under 16.

    1. Tori Colvin is an amazing rider, shes actually who won over the weekend. It's good to see lots of young talent in the show ring.

  4. So happy that all went well and you are settling back in!
