Getting Closer...

The countdown has begun! Well actually, the countdown began last month really but still, it's no less exciting that in less than two months, I will be travelling to Mississippi with my trainer to pick up my mustang and start the Extreme Mustang Makeover challenge! As the date ticks closer, I have been getting more and more excited about getting my mustang. Whatever reservations I had in the past about training a mustang have been replaced with confidence; it's helped that I've regained my confidence in my riding since my fall a couple or so months back and I've been helping my trainer with both of her Supreme Mustangs (the Supreme Mustang Makeover is essentially the same thing as the Extreme Makeover, but instead of the mustangs being 3-4 years old, these mustangs are 5-6 years old and considered "unadoptable" because of their age). I simply cannot WAIT until I can get started on my own mustang! It's going to be a hectic summer and fall, but it's well worth it!

  1. I really do need to read your blog more regularly, because I had to go back to read your Summer blogpost to understand what the Mustang Makeover was all about.

    Now that I have a clue as to what is going on, I can say "That sounds really difficult, and I hope you do well."

    More importantly, I'm glad you're regaining your confidence.

    Whatever happens, God be with you. :)
