Thanks for the words of encouragement. Isn't weight predjudice a horrible thing? I used to be skinny and had no problems getting a job. Now when I enquire about a job I get a once over and negative response.
I am excited because I am going to get to take my horse to the Goethe ride. We're not going to compete, we're not ready yet, but it will be a good way to introduce her to the sights and sounds of an endurance ride. Of course we'll hit the trails while we're there.
