Today is THE day.

Today, at 10:12am, a year's worth of hard work will be tested.
Today, at 10:12am, we will turn down the centerline and give it our all.
Today, at 10:12am, we go head to head with the best in the nation for the first leg of AEC.
And we are ready.


She is bathed, clipped, trimmed, and tidied. After this morning, she'll have the most perfect button braids and flawless quarter marks. Her socks will be cornstarched, her hooves glossed, and her face lightly touched with face glo. She'll be gleaming, my tack will be shining, and my own clothes are starched and drycleaned, every inch of us sparkling. We have put everything we have into these few moments, and I hope it really shows.

Today is THE day.
Wish us luck.
