Horse show cancellations… and hope

Fielding the daily “postponements” and cancellations of riding clinics and horse show judging. (a photo from my judging booth at last summer’s Teen Ranch hunter/jumper show).
Every postponement is mingled with a little hope as we kick the can down the road a little further. Each cancellation feels like a little grief.
Thinking of all the show managers and horse show committees who have carefully crafted class lists and contracts – thanks so much for your efforts!

As I walked on a rural road  this a.m., I noticed, at the side of the road, popping up from all the road salt, dried weeds and discarded Tim Hortons’ cups…what looks like daffodil shoots!
