Jersey Fresh - 2015

It was an amazing much needed weekend away.
Although I did miss my boys, cat included.

Wendy and I headed for Jersey with her boyfriend Friday morning and made it just in time to see the end of the Dressage rounds. Gorgeous...






I honestly couldn't tell you who was who but I had my eye on the grey above in the Micklem all weekend long. Saturday morning we were up at the almost crack of dawn and ran into a friend of Wendy's at the Dunkin attached to the hotel (go figure!) who followed us there. To add to the exciting day of eventing, Lauren from My Life With Charlie met us there first thing! It was so great to see her and kind of catch up but we were all pretty stoked about the entire day ahead of us.

Started out pretty misty and gross but good for the horses. 
Through out the day, the sun came out and it turned into a really beautiful day.













Luckily only 1 of the 3 falls that day were bad.
Some broken bones and internal injuries but rumor has it the rider is doing pretty well.

We said our goodbyes to Lauren and headed out to a local tavern for dinner.
Pretty delicious.

Last day was show jumping! Then a long trip home.















I'm no Kate Taylor for Polar Square Designs but I did my best since she couldn't be there.

I'll post pictures here and there and I want to definitely highlight an amazing rider named Sydney.

But for now? Work.

Thanks! I know they're a little dark but I'm not one to get into editing.

I was going to ask but I didn't want to seem creepy weird. Still new to the blogging world.

Your pictures are fantastic. That one of the gray in the water almost made me need to use the ladies room! Yikes! Fun times! I was at Rolex a few weeks ago (first for me). It was a highlight of my year (probably life). I didn't get as many nice pics as you, however. Well done!
