So I just have to say how EXCITED I am about this coming weekend (Sunday the 20th)...it's my first Event of the season and this year I've moved up to Very Green hehe ;) For those who know me, you know what a big step that is!
So anyway, this event is at the same place where I fell off in cross country and was eliminated twice last year, so it's kinda my nemesis lol! But NOT THIS YEAR oooooooh no I am NOT letting that happen again! I went to a hunter pace last weekend that is known for its tough course and jumps...and I forced myself to try to jump every darn jump (minus the ones of 3'0" because my pony is really only trained for like 2'3" right now and so am I hehe! She refused several of them, but I (with the help of a little conversation with my crop!) made her go over them and by the end of the course, she had learned that it's easier to just jump over things than argue with me! I feel like riding those refusals really gave me the confidence I need to stay on this weekend...so cross your fingers everyone!
Here is a video and some still pics of my hunter pace weekend...I think this log is about 2'3" maybe? Or 2'6"? I don't know, my pony is 14.1hh and I'm 5'1" so you tell ME ;) For those who don't know me, I'm the one on the buckskin, my friend Barb is on the black horse!
I'll post updates after Sunday of how our first Event of the season went!!!
Wish us luck!
