Ashley and Cj
Cj and I have known each other for 9 years and out of the 9 years we dated for four years within those four years I never got to go to a horse show since I was finishing up school and then getting settled into a new job at the hospital I work at. Well I finally decided to go to a show that supports N.C. state university equestrian team. So my trainer and I drove to Raleigh Friday to start the weekend. Cj came to meet us late Friday after he got off work. I didnt have the slightest clue as to what Cj and my trainer Samantha were planning. They talked with the people that were putting on the show to let them know that Cj was planning on proposing. They jumped in to help Cj pull it off. As the got underway Saturday Cj started acting a little weird but I didn’t think anything of it since he had never seen me at a horseshoe before. I thought maybe he was just nervous for me since I hadn’t shown in a few years. As I got on and ready for my class I noticed I’m last on the order list. My number gets called and I go into the ring to start my course. I put in a good solid round and as I get done with the last jump the announcer comes over the speakers saying that the judge asked for me to halt and stay in the ring. At that moment Cj enter into the ring. I looked really confused and even asked him what are you doing I’m in the middle of a class. He then tells me how he knew the moment we started dating that I was going to be the woman he marries. The horse I’m on starts moving and I’m so worried that I was going to run into him so I hop off. He then gets down on one knee in the middle of the ring in front of everyone watching to ask me to be his wife. I said yes and the whole place applauded and cheered for us.
