Catching Up

Sorry I'm so behind on writing! I've spent the last 2 days on the road or on a plane, not so good for spending time online. Yesterday was a fun day. My flight arrived in London around 9:30 Monday morning (England time. Around 3:30am Alabama time). Ofcourse, I was held at Customs for about 2 hrs.... funny really, but let's hope it doesn't happen again!

Once all of the grooms arrived we were picked up and driven to Stansted to pick our horses up from the Airport there. That was such a cool thing! All of the horses were brought in their crates to the quarantine area (picture below of horses in their crates. looks like 3 white horse trailers tagged together). Everyone travelled well, and Max went on and on about what a champ Trevor is and how well he did throughout the whole thing. :) Once the horses were all unloaded and checked over with their paperwork, they were loaded onto the lorry with all of our equipment and we were taken to David Green's farm in Marlborough, where we are staying for the next few weeks.

By the time we got to the farm it was almost dark, so we got the horses settled and our things unloaded and semi-organized and called it a night. Jackie Green cooked a great dinner for all of us, so we had a good meal in the house with some fun people (including the President of the FEI Eventing Division. haha!).

This morning Paige and I took Trevor and Parker for a nice hand walk. There are lots of sheep in pastures everywhere and lots of bunnies hopping all over the place. The horses are terrified of the sheep.. that's going to be interesting to watch! haha! Jess and Kyle arrive from the airport sometime in the next few hours. Not sure what's in the plans for the rest of the day after that, but we'll see! I'll update as often as possible.
