My horse and I came in 9th out of about 100 people at our first 50 mile race last summer. It was 112 degrees (in Maine, no less), but we somehow made it. He's getting a semi-break since I'm in school now, but next summer we're going to pick right back up, and two years from now I'm shooting for a 100.

.... (there's other stuff there too, but they should be obvious)

...wow. I ran across you a while back on slashdot, but I can't believe I didn't friend you before. I think I actually added you to IM, but didn't do so on slashdot.

*used to showjump
*majored in Electrical Engineering (among other things)
*worked in DC for a while
*is not much older than you

Nice to meet you! :)

uh oh going into horse mode *warning could be tiresome* Arabs are of course the best, however since he's moved up to Massachusettes and is getting treated like royalty (plus of course it's a tad cooler than the DC area), Mr Splash has decided to live up to his heritage. I think he woke up one morning and said "hey wait, I have a delicate nose, refined features, a tail that flips up, huge powerful muscles from all those endurance races..I must be an arab!" And ever since then he's been acting like it. My sweet bonbproof little kids lesson horse has turned into a raving lunatic who is scared of everything that he deems out of place, and likes nothing better than to tear around the arena like he's racing every other horse in there. All my hard work seems to have gone kaput. Anyway...always loving the chance the vent about my furry little monster (I think he knows he'll be pampered no matter what he does and he's taking advantage of that :P)

You said you added me to IM...AIM or yahoo? (I don't use my yahoo account anymore except for web registration purposes)...

and of course my obligitory picture link [photobucket.com] ;)
