Promotion and Special Events, Rider - Solstice

The perfect weekend

This past weekend was my endurance club’s (OCTRA)AGM and banquet. This year it was held in Cobourg which is nice for me because it’s about 20 minutes from my house. On Saturday morning until around noon I sat at the ESRR booth, talking to people and selling product.

Around noon was when the AGM started so there weren’t many booths open. Unfortunately I had a lot of homework to do so I went to our shared hotel room to wait for my friends to finally arrive. They arrived around 1:30 and we were all glad to see each other. I haven’t seen my one friend since the last ride of the season.

The banquet was great, seeing and catching up everyone I haven’t seen in a while was really nice. At the awards I got top junior for the 4th year in a row, my 2000 miles, my horses 1500 miles and 4th in endurance.

On Sunday my friend and I went for a ride on my two Arabs, Desi and Angel. When we checked the time going home we couldn’t believe 2.5 hours had already flown by. Both the horses and people enjoyed the ride very much and the weather was very nice too. Heading home I was very comfortable in a sweater. Can’t wait for it to be warm all the time.
