AS LUCK WOULD HAVE IT...

 Luck is believing you're lucky - Tennessee Williams

A Wise Woman once said that luck is just opportunities taken and a world view that opens up to those possibilities.  You are as lucky as you want to be.. see your luck and then take it!

As luck would have it, I woke up to the sound of rain.  It wasn't the gentle pitter pat of a light shower but the sound of rain.  And then the song begins...  "Should I stay or should I go?"  The weather report called for snow, rain and maybe, some clearing late morning.  "Should I stay or should I go?"

The Fall Myopia Hunter Pace is a spectacular event and marks the end of the season with pure outside galloping fun.  And, it was a wintery morning...  Not what the plan called for...

Do you know what else is spectacular?  Riding with Sugar's 20-Sumtin' Friend.  You see, yesterday I threw out the "Do you think we should go?" bait and got nothing.  Then I threw in the old, "Do you think hunting and then doing the Hunter Pace is too much?'  Still nothing..

  
 This morning, the questions came from me and, I got nothing...  My renewed interest in photography and my desire to gallop my lil' pinto pony overrode my desire to do laundry and dishes.  We're gonna go no matter what the weather!  If raining, the remaining fall foliage will be brilliant and if it snowing... what a treat! 

You know what?   Us horse folk are soooo lucky!  We all took the opportunity, laughed at the weather and galloped through some of the most amazing hunt territory MA has to offer.  Some of us showed up in costume (you Harley Horses rocked, as did the green frog followed by three princesses), others nattily attired and most dressed for warmth. 

None of us complained...

As luck would have it... the day was an absolute blast!
