I showed up pretty dang early so hit up the VIP tent for some breakfast and followed Diane and Ali around, videoing their rounds.
The early part of the week is typically pro rides- and I had no problem letting Ellie have her best first show experience with Ali!
She ended up going at around 10:30- I hovered around anxiously while Ali schooled her and got ready to go into the ring!
I was SO proud of her! Spent the rest of the day trying to do a little work amidst a sea of fancy horses.....very distracting!
This is what I arrived to on Thursday morning.....
The same lovely routine as Wednesday. Relax. Drink some coffee. Video.
