Creative Every Day Challenge

I have been consumed with creating the website for my new business, but I finally have time to look around a little and see what is going on in the blogging world.
The Creative Everyday Challenge has been carrying on without me, but I found when I visited the site today that the theme for May was Nature.
Happy coincidence, in May I discovered that my love for a horse sport, eventing, had led me to spend many entire days at competitions; walking courses and photographing horses and riders, chatting with riders and re-awakening a passion that I had buried a year ago along with a very special horse.
Here are a couple of shots:

3-Day Event

I have stayed away from eventing since Scotty died, without a top rate horse to ride it was just sad to watch. This spring I took a student out to school over some cross country jumps and started getting interested again. Took her to a Combined Test, she did great, I wished I was riding.
Went to a Horse Trial and wished I was riding.
Today I went to a 3Day Event, helped out a couple of riders at the vet box and I just can't stand it....I have to get back to the sport.
With or without Nina, I have the bug again. See Nina's Story if you are curious about why I don't just run out and do this. First we have to learn to walk.
