It’s weird how much things change yet stay the same when a horse dies. I thought I’d never feel the same. I thought I’d never be able to look at his photos without crying. It’s damn hard not to cry, but it is possible. He was such a phenomenal horse and he really made me a lot significantly better person. For reals, yo.
I am applying to ride in a dressage clinic with David Marcus, of the Canadian Olympic team. He is originally from my home town and is giving a clinic just 45 short minutes away from where I keep Kozy now.
I am a bundle of nerves in applying. Part of me thinks “Why would they accept a no body, low level rider with a green rescue horse to partake in a clinic of this caliber?”. But the other pat of me thinks “Why not apply? Why not!?! Take the chance…”
I’m going to go for it and apply and just hope for the best. I’m writing a short letter to the committee assigned to picking the riders for the clinic explaining why this clinic would mean a lot to me.
My biggest worry is that I will get into the clinic and will not be able to afford the $500+ fee for the clinic.
If I apply for this, would my friends and followers help? If I started a GoFundMe to take me to an Olympic clinic, would anyone be willing or able to help?
I’ve given money to 3 different people on Tumblr in their times of equine lust that they could not afford… isn’t it time that I get a little something too? I’m lucky enough to have my one-in-a-million rescue horse… but could I get this one-in-a-million clinic too?
Please message me off anon so we can talk about the saddle! I’m desperate to sell it!
