Okay, your post definitely made me crack up! Thanks (: I'm actually showing the gray (and the bay towards the end too, I think) this weekend, so that should be interesting. His owner is out of town and wanted me to show, and he's such a sweet horse- I couldn't turn that offer down! And grays are nice looking, but they can be hard to keep clean! I haven't been jumping too high lately because most of the horses are fairly green, and the ones that aren't are beginner horses that can't go much higher. I had a lesson last friday where I was jumping a 3'3 course with a 3'6x3'6 swedish oxer, a 3'6x4'7 hogsback, and a 3'9x4'11 triple bar (thattttt was big) on one of our vet's jumpers, which was a ton of fun. Something different. Of course, THAT had to be the time my mom couldn't come out and get pictures *sigh* If my old horse hadn't sold so fast, I wanted to do the 3'6 juniors/big eq on him this spring, but that didn't work out. So lately my challenges have been no stirrup work, and fixing bad habits, haha
And it's insanely hot around here... we ride either really early, or really late. Any other time of the day, and it's just unbearable!
