It was a huge success! Rode with my two friends vicky and jen and we had a great time. Came in 4th in open with 5 min off the pace, too fast lol. Good thing that we got lost for a few minutes!! We took an extra lap around a field and galloped past the turn and it wasn't til we realized we were on our second lap that we had missed the turn haha. And we were STILL 5 min too fast ROFL!
But we had SOOOO much fun and afterwards we were invited to join the hunt and they said at the very least we MUST come capping with them and roading the hounds in the summer which was just amazing. I was sooo happy so i'll see what I can do (it's $$$) but they want to make it as affordable as they can and would really love to have us hunt with them which makes me super proud of my horse(s - vicky rode opal) and friends and just the fact that they invited us. Cool stuff!
Soooo now i'm sore, sitting on heating pad and took a muscle relaxer. Idiot me was lazy and rode in jeans yesterday and jumped 3'6" a few times to loosen up sky and they bunched under my half chaps and gave me a rub on my right leg. Course to compensate on the pace I had more weight in my left stirrup so my left calf is screaming (though the right is sore too haha on my horse you better have your heels down and know how to use your seat even in FULL 2pt otherwise away you'll go!). And of course it's my left calf, and that's my worst knee so that's sore too. Blech haha! But SO worth it! Sky was (as always) a rockstar and jumped EVERYTHING woot! And my mom got there in time to see me ride in which was cool and I got to hang with her some as we chatted and ate and cooled the horses out which was nice for mother's day too. :)
Giving the horses a few days off and going to start working duke (my clyde-tb eventer) to condition him for the next pace in a few weeks and prep for our event mid-june!
So how was everyone else's weekend??? Updates please!!! What did you guys do?
