Best Bit Of Your Weekend
[Photo A Day June Prompt For "30 Things About Me" Series]

What a weekend! Woofstock Saturday and Horse Racing Sunday! They were neck in neck for a bit but on the long stretch, the horses won out as the best photo (and fun) of the weekend! I really love the dirt flying and can just feel the hooves pounding the ground in my favourite photo of the week.

Fact 10 About Me
I used to compete in Equestian Hunter competitions. One of my horses was a chestnut thoroughbred mare named "Gossip" very similar to this beauty. I know my new interest in training Becky in Rally draws on my past experience as a rider and showing my horses. Both require a patience, understanding of animal behaviour and most important, the desire to work as a team.
