Goofy horse went the other way with it. I was feeling a little under the weather and didn't quite have the motivation I had for the last hunter pace. Puck's one of those horses who checks in with the rider before each fence. If I'm not completely comitted, he doesn't jump. Suffice to say we had a few runouts, but he took care of me otherwise and was not strong this time. I noticed right from the start he seemed to be better conserving his energy in the first half of the pace. Last time he really got amped up early. He's a smart horse. Thanks for asking.
No ill effects from the public water either, so that's good too.
