Later, after my second cup of steaming joe and a light breakfast, I head back to the barns to greet the arriving campers. "Good morning children! It's going to be a great day!" Everyone scurries about joyfully taking care of their ponies and loving all the work to keep them well!
The day just keeps getting better. The sun is warm, the air is dry and the kids are off to their first mounted lesson. I prepare for my class on grooming to win, preparing for the jog or perhaps equine first aid. I finish the day with another great ride on a happy horse with da boys trailing about enjoying a dip or two in the stream.

much like GMHA

end of the day!
And, I would not be me if I didn't confess that I am a little worried. What if I hate it? What if the kids hate me? What if I'm so exhausted that I don't want to ride Sugar or walk da boys? What if I can't get coffee? What if...
You know, I recognize that it's my nature... Just like when I enter the ring, when I get to GMHA that first day, I will not only be ok, but I will have the time of my life!
Let the games begin!
