I am incredible self conscious because I'm a beached whale in human clothing. These photos prove it too, but alas...
I'm joining a gym tomorrow after work and I quit soda December 31st.
Anyone want to donate to my lap band fund? After seeing these I am actually considering quitting horseback riding all together.
So anyhow. My boyfriend who hates horses stood in the cold and snow to snap photos of Hylke and I riding in the snow. I make Hylke look so small. He's really not. He's very thick and has a lot of presence packed into his 15.2 height.
Also? Some how John manages to only snap photos of me making horrible faces along with my eyes closed. I had my camera on some settings so all he'd have to do is follow the horse and it should focus with the button half pressed. It was also on burst so he could just snap and follow and the camera would adjust. Somehow, some way my eyes are closed in every single of the 132 photos John took.
My stirrups are also too long. I need to make new holes in the leathers. I can't ride worth **** on Friesians. I'm so used to smooth gaits so I'm re-learning everything.
We started a nice cross over at a trot here. Can't really tell it in the photos but I've been wearing dressage spurs and he has been responding to them really well. I don't think I have enough "leg" without them right now.
I also should have just kept my hair tied up. Stupid hair.
It's like seeing photos of the Kentucky Horse Park meets Sea World. I know!
