When I first got the news that I would be representing Canada at FEI Young Rider World Cup in Germany this December, I am pretty sure that I stopped breathing for a few seconds. And then I started jumping up and down like a little kid! I couldn't believe it! It was really happening.
My first thing to do, start planning. And it has been an ongoing process since then. There is a TON of stuff that needs to be organized in a fairly short amount of time. This added along with training and school work has made it a hectic couple of weeks.
Jive and I have started our training regime for this competition, and it's a tough one. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity and we're going to compete to the best of our abilities. My main focus is getting him to listen to everything I ask with a quick response. He can do everything, but he likes to dance to his own tune sometimes. And if we're going to do our best, we need to be 100% together.
Wow. I truly cannot express how excited I am to be going to Germany. It's unbelievable really. Everyday that Jive and I's date of departure draws nearer, I can feel the butterflies of excitement in my stomach start fluttering. It's going to be quite an adventure. :)
