spring time events

In a little over a month, the first show of the season will be here. I am trying to decide if I want to take Lucy to that one or give it more time. I think if I can continue to afford lessons, we'll progress enough to go to the Heritage Farm April 18th show. If we're not ready by then, though, there's always the May 2nd RISPCA Benefit Ride, which is an annual horse ride in Warwick at Goddard Park to benefit the RISPCA. I designed the t-shirt for them last year (above) and was really happy to have the honour of doing it again this year. I sent the finalized design for this year's ride to the event organizer last night and it turned out really well! It's in a different style than last year's, but I'm sure it will be well-received. I will be donating the original piece of artwork again to be auctioned off at the event.

Other than that, Lucy has been doing well. We've had a week of glorious weather that's gearing down towards four straight days of rain this coming weekend :( I guess it had to end some time! It looks like I'll have to make a trip to stock up on shavings, because rainy days always mean totally trashed stalls since the horses are kept in all day.


  1. I love the graphic! I would love to see the new one. Even if you guys aren't ready for a class maybe you could go for a school?

  2. That's a great idea. We could just walk across the street and school around. It's a reasonably-sized show so they probably wouldn't even notice. Great idea!

  3. Hi! I popped over to your blog from Eventing A Gogo; loved reading about Lucy! I also have an OTTB :) I love the graphic on this shirt. Do you know if any are still available for sale? Thanks!

  4. Hi Shane :)
    I am not sure if there are any left. The person to contact is named Denise, and her email is Tell her Kate sent you! :D


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment!
