It’s official- my sweet baby Moe horse is coming to Oklahoma later this month!! I spoke with my dad this morning and he promised to get Moe’s Coggins test done and his health papers together so I can come pick him up. Levi and I are headed out either May 21 or 22 and will return May 23 or 24. (To thank him for such a giant favor, I’m trying to arrange a whitewater rafting trip with my friends Jake and Greer.)

For those that don’t know, Moe is my amazing Thoroughbred gelding. He was the first ‘nice’ horse I ever had. My parents bought him for me when he was 8, shortly after he’d started his first season of eventing. I was a junior in high school. My last few horses had been of varying temperaments and talents, but none were enough for me to advance in my equestrian career. My Pony Club friend Kim let me know of a little chestnut gelding her trainer was looking to sell, and I met Moe at my Pony Club’s annual spring horse trial. He’d just won the beginner novice division. I took him for a test ride and remember thinking that his strides felt huge!
