Showed yesterday on 2 different horses. I rode my trainer's horse in English after my trainer(who sprained his ankle on Thursday)decided the pain was too much and he couldn't ride. Then my friend did English but she was sick all week and she started feeling sick again so I jumped on her horse for Western. I didn't place cause my trainer's horse hadn't been riding for a week before I jumped on him and he spooked at everything and when a horse in front of us stopped suddenly, he almost ran into them and then reared up. Plus, my friend's horse is pretty green and has a lot to learn and there was like 22 people in every class which isnt really a lot but its a Beat the Winter Blues show and we were riding in an indoor, so it was. And when we were waiting on the rail for our turn in Eq, the snow fell off the roof and all the horse took off. I was this close to coming off, but I stayed on by some miracle. But it was fun. Today, we made maple syrup and I feel so sticky now lol. I got some in my hair so I'm going to go shower in a few. Had a really fun weekend, but it flew by too fast.
To see the wind's power, the rain's cleansing, and the sun's radiant life, one need only to look at the horse.
