Nothing Special...


I think I forgot to mention the chaos of the first class at the show.. basically someone fell off, other horses freaked out and the riders were jumping off the horses, the girl behind me almost ran me over BUT Henry was a rock start, wasn't shaken by it and I was able to smile and keep relaxed!



Notice the rail isn't in the up on the back poll, good thing I didn't touch it!!


Ok so now 2'6 looks so small to me! Thanks Kat and Andy for the pics! :)





You can see that we were relaxed and had some great moments on course, even though we didn't place I was really proud of us and wasn't mad (not to mention they were big classes, lots of horses in the 2'6.. so 2'9/3' is calling our name!).

Tuesday's normal lesson was canceled but I decided to hack anyways.

I stared my ride out with a 4.5 minute 2 point session and ended with a 4.5 minute 2 point session.

I basically just hacked... it is hard to ride when your 2 year old is there, she was not cooperating with sitting still or in one spot last night.

Off today, hack Thursday, trainer ride Friday, hack Saturday.
