TBT – 3/20/14

March 20, 2014

This is a throw back to when I competed at the Devon Horse Show in 1994 or 1995. My teammate, Mark, hosted teams from Canada, England and another country, whom I forget. We all stayed at Mark’s house. Rob brought down a big blue Lorry for transporting ponies to and from the show grounds. And we rode several sessions over 2 or 3 days.

My memory is even more foggy than usual in regards to this competition. I had mono and felt like I was moving through muddy water the while time. I was also puffy and swollen from meds and slept through pretty much everything but the riding. I do remember before going to the competition the doctor asking me what my chances of falling off would be and me just laughing.

This was back when I had my lovely Arab mare, Berry. She was a games master and took good care of me. She was fast, had wicked killer turns and could stop. She was also an easy vault.

look at these lovely pre digital photos!
The first one is of (left to right) Colleen (M) Rutledge, myself (Krista) and Mark Washburn.

The second photo is of myself and the third shows my teammate Mollie S in the background with her pony Allie.
