I don't know much about you're story but I really enjoyed watching these clips, well done to you both, especially in some pretty adverse conditions (**** weather hey?).
Good save at jump 3 of the SJ round, certainly not reminiscent of someone who is nervous about stadium jumping (which I gather from your post?).
Thank you! And yes, you are correct - I had this major fear of Stadium Jumping, but a huge thanks to my Coach who got me over it by helping me to find my position again, and to retrain my mind (subconsious) that there is nothing to be scared of.
I spent quite some time reading "Positive Affermation" cards over and over and over again, and facing my fears by just doing it.
When I woke up that morning *6:00am* I wasn't nervous. Getting ready for Dressage, nothing bothered me. I remember thinking "Well, the nerves will come when Stadium rears its ugly head"...and I brushed it off to focus on the first two phases.
When CC Came, I was psyched to ride and when it was done, I knew Stadium was approaching quickly.
Even while I was dressing and tacking up to prepare, I felt...nothing. Standing next to the ring, awaiting our number ot be called....nothing. Riding into the ring...still nothing.
I rode and it was done before I knew it - and my Coach said to me "She's baaaccckkk" and it felt FABULOUS!
Thank you Juniper and CJ8Sky! **HUGS**
YAY KIM! YAY NELSON!! You guys look fantabulous as always. You are SO ready to attack Novice.
Thanks Drew! We have alot of work to do to attack Novice.....our next comp will be full of very tough competition.......lets hope it doesn't pour rain that day - lol.
Now that I got over that illusive Trak fence, I know we can defeat the CC phase FO SHO!! I just need to remember to start my watch...lol.
