I'm so blessed to have some really incredible friends. This particular one I've had the pleasure to share a few adventures with this year! The incredible Jeanette Hall invited Jose and I to perform with her at the Wildwood Fair for their mid-show entertainment. Jeanette is an accomplished archer and gave a talk and demo on mounted archery. Unfortunately her super-trusty Morgan is still recovering from an injury so she brought out her rookie backup, a young Appy named Caspar. She had shot off of him only once months ago at a stand still. Today, she took him all the way up to shooting from the trot!!! He was a rockstar, and Jeanette was so fun to watch and engaging with the crowd and kids. I almost didn't want to perform because I was having so much fun watching them.
|Just like that! |
It's not untrue..
|Jose makes me look good!|
After a good demo to a receptive crowd, we packed up the kids and Jeanette treated me to a Chinese food late lunch. I'm not sure if the food was really as good as I think it was or if we were just that hungry but it was fantastic company regardless.
It's always a pleasure to meet people when we go out. We connected with a Patrol Sheriff who was in mounted troop likely at the same time as Anthony. He asked if Jose was a Quarter Horse, but we won't hold that against him.
As always, happy horseing!!!
