|Happy campers - well the one with the beer is anyway.|
We ended up having a fantastic weekend, the rain stayed away and we spent Sunday at an outdoor adventure place where we climbed, flumed, Tarzan walked and other activities that my two boys had no problem outshining thier parents at. 'Come on mum - you're a bit slow' became the day's refrain. Great fun though.

Although I don't plan to compete three horses, I have a big problem with the lovely Garth, (see previous posts). He is a funny horse - he can cope with going to a show on his own but take him with another horse and take that horse away from him and he flips out. I have had his head stitched up twice after he reared and went through the roof of my trailer and a friends lorry. My solution which may seem little extreme, is to go back to a truck so that I can always have a horse in the back keeping him company. Believe you me, when he flips it is just not safe for either him or any handler trying to calm him down. My old show jumper Modetia will be a great nanny - she loves tootling to shows and is quite happy to hang around calmly for hours as long as she has plenty of haylage to munch.
Should be picking my lorry up at the end of this week - can't wait - look out all you truckers!
