hunterseat df: Hunter Seat Equitation is a division that is judged on the ability and the style of the rider. The riders can be judged both over fences and on the flat.

Although true, hunters DO eat, at least the skilled ones do, my name derives from the world of horses.

And because the word hunter is in my name, people automatically think I'm a guy. Not even close.

Whenever I meet someone named Hunter I have to bite my tongue to keep from saying "That's my name, too!"

I'm doing my best not to kill my cat, who is wandering through the fairly empty house crying. Can you imagine 4+ days going across country with THAT?? I'll let you know.

Got word that my horses are being picked up Friday. Oh yes, that pesky little health certification. Well a retired (almost retired apparently) vet came to my house and got the paperwork taken care of so they're good to go. I'll miss those knuckleheads but I'm hoping to catch up with them shortly. They'll be safe and...

Praise God the sale was successful! The house is nearly empty. My task now is to pack what I'm taking, that which will fit on a pallet, and get rid of the rest.

I have a dog crate in my trunk which needs to go back to the rescue. That will free up the car to clean really well and get configured for the trek across country. At that point I'll practice driving with 2 dogs and a cat. (I'll let you know when to stay praying for that little challenge.)
I have a saddle I was going...

Wow. I've got the jitters this morning. Probably wasn't the best time to go cold turkey off my vitamins. I thought I could get better blood work done but I can't get in for another month so I'm going to go back on my supplements.

I suspect the main reason for the nerves is this sale that starts at 7am tomorrow and I still have a bunch of stuff to do.

Plus I want to get this house listed.

Wait...did I pray this morning? If you have to ask.......

Contractors last night, contractors today...I feel like Murphy Brown with her painter.
I retired on Veteran's Day and really want to be in better shape. I've run a couple of 5Ks and I try to street roller skate a 10K every Saturday.

I found a boarding place for the horses if the house sells fast. I've contacted the shipping company and filled them in on the situation, and that I can be flexible. I think it's better to keep them in this climate (non-stop sun, though it's getting...

What a long strange trip it’s been…so far.

Sure, Jerry Garcia was probably referencing an acid trip, but life in general is pretty trippy. I am listening to that very Grateful Dead song, Truckin’, which says, “Sometimes the cards aren’t worth a damn if you don’t lay them down.” So let’s play the hand we’re dealt. Here goes. I’m going to document my upcoming odyssey.

Quickly: my transfer to CA was a career move, meant to be temporary. After a...
