I had a fun filled day today. I had a morning lesson on Kylie, she behaved, and I rode pretty good, it has been raining the past few days, so I haven't been able to ride too much this week. I delivered some custom bracelets and anklet orders I had made. Next it was off the San Gabriel Bead Company where my good friend Susan fired my PMC pieces. I also bought some cool new tools for future jewelry projects....Rawhide Mallet, Tapered Flat Nose Pliers, Stepped Pliers, 5 Step Mandrel Set, Cut Lube, Soft Brass Brush & a Brass Texture Plate.

Chad and I then took the Corvette down to the beach and had a late lunch at the Chart House in Malibu. It was excellent. We started off with a seared ahi appetizer in a soy-ginger sauce, and then each had lobster bisque and a salad. Delicious! We sat next to the window with a beautiful view of the ocean. On the way back we stopped at the European Equestrian and checked it out, cool tack shop.
Then it was off the the LAEC to watch the $15,000 Memorial Day Classic/USHJA Hunter Derby. Nicole Kane who rides at Rainbow Canyon with me competed in it, and had a very respectable round. It was fun to watch - 30 competed, and 12 came back for the handy round. I think Triple Lutz (Samantha Harrison) won, and Y2K (Natalie Rae Medlock) was second, third Coffee Talk (Nick Haness), but I may have to come back and revise. We got drinking and socializing and kind of missed the end. There were some amazingly talented and beautiful horses in the class!
