I received a message the other day “Hi Daisy. Just had a thought – and please feel free to say No, but we’re holding a little fun show on Saturday for yard clients in aid of Walking with the Wounded and Breast Cancer Care and our judge for the fancy dress is no longer available. Is there any chance you may be free?”
So of course I said I would be delighted and duly turned up at 11am sharp ready to judge. And I am so glad I did.
I definitely take my riding and horses generally quite seriously – I was born super competitive and if I am going to do something, I like to do it properly. But this show reminded me that sometimes it’s important to just have a bit of fun too.
There was no bitchiness, everyone was supportive of one another, it didn’t matter if you had a top competition horse, an unbroken baby pony or a tiny little Shetland. Everyone was there just to have some fun and it was blinking marvellous.
So this Christmas I say, go and have some fun. Put some tinsel on, get your comedy antlers out, go and pretend to be a cowboy in the woods, just have a giggle because life is too short not to.
Thank you Bockmer Livery Stables!
