We leave today

We are leaving for Ft. Worth this afternoon. I probably won't be able to update this until sometime next week. This is definitely a bittersweet time for me. Part of me is looking forward to what lies in store for me next and part of me is dreading Saturday when my 3 guys go to their new homes. My wish for them is a loving home that will continue to train them and bring the best out in them. All three are going to make someone a fantastic horse. They are all so willing to learn and they love people. I am going to miss their hello neighs whenever I go outside. I can't say that I'm going to miss the amount of time I spent training them, but I take so much out of this experience and I wouldn't trade it for the world. Not many 14 years old can say they've done what I did-train a wild mustang, 3 wild mustangs. My family has been an incredible source of support, providing help and advice when needed. I can't thank them enough. The other Mustang trainers have been so supportive, offering advice and support as well. What an opportunity I have had and I guarantee that it is one that I won't ever forget. Until after the competition...
