From one bitter cold state to another, Allura was cursing their luck. It had been way below freezing up until their departure for Michigan, they would have to rush quickly to the indoor from their stables, the bitter cold biting at them. The rivers surrounding their farm had frozen over, a sight rarely seen around Maryland. Yet of course, the day they packed up the trailer, it was finally in the fifties after what seemed like an eternity. Then they arrive in Michigan after a long ride in a heated vehicle. The cold was like a slap to the face, below freezing once again.
Well, if they survived it at home, they'll survive it here. Cosmic didn't seem to notice any difference, she was content with her thick blanket and the amount of time she was without it outside ended up being less than she had to be at home. She didn't even have to touch the snow due to the tent coverings. The mare had gone through the whole course, collected and content, no nervous energy, such a rare experience for the OTTB.
As they approached the final jump, the oxer baring Bayside's choice of colors and some holiday decor, Allura collected the mare and urged her forward. This was it, the last jump of what had so far been their best run at any show. As she stood up into her two-point, Allura already knew, they were going to make it. This was it, their best course run yet.
