Tomorrow is the big day. My friend Nancy and I will be taking off around 9:00 am to Pensacola, FL for Kelly's clinic. My best friend Sandy was supposed to come, but had to cancel at the last minute. We will miss her so much. I will take notes for you don't worry. You will be there in spirit. I cannot begin to express how excited I am. My mom has been working her tail off sewing my name on all of my lead ropes and halters. She has also embroidered some cute little boots on my new towels for my new horse trailer. I will styling and profiling!! Oh, she also put the boots on my pillow cases. It really looks good. Thanks a bunch mom! You always put the icing on the cake for me and appreciate you more than you know.
I feel like I am at least getting my foot in the door with PNH. I get so frustrated sometimes because my journey is moving so slowly. Lately I have been reading a lot of blogs and I am learning that if you do not attend clinics you will have missing pieces in the program. In some of the blogs I have read, I came across "clinic notes". I have almost the entire set of DVDs and some of this information isn't on them. Why not? I have paid for the goods. I know why info. is left out, but I don't have any Parelli Professionals nearby to have regular clinics with. This is the first one that is fairly close in two years. Anyway, I felt the need to vent on that one. I just want to be in the 'know', ya know!
We are packing up and bathing the horses today. My poor husband doesn't realize what he has signed up for driving us on a five hour drive. He will be driven mad, I'm sure, by the time we pull up at Forever Sky Ranch. I will hopefully get to meet Mirka Pitts at the clinic. Evidently she trains at the ranch. I have been watching her videos on youtube and she is awesome. I could watch her for hours.
Okay, my coffee cup is empty, so it is time to get my butt in gear. Lots to do today. Wish me luck!
