"Why does summer even exist," Jackie whined as she held onto the sweating Gelding's lead rope. Why were all these shows in the hottest places they could possibly be? Why didn't these people think of indoor arenas?
"All you have to do is hold him, at least you didn't have to ride over at Texas Rose -- that was brutal." Savannah said. Savannah, Dumbo's usual handler, had broken her foot the day after showing in Texas Rose, and would be unable to lead Dumbo around the arena for this show. Jackie volunteered to handle the gentle gelding, a nice change from her usual steed, Hamlet, who was the exact opposite.
Dripping in sweat already, Jackie lead Dumbo into the arena after the announcer called for entrants of the class to step in.
