Lol yeah I'll just drug myself up, smoke a lil J, ya know.
Haha jk, thanks for the tip, I'll try that! I kept trying to tell myself I was just schooling the horse, and just getting her working good, but then I kept forgetting things. My focus was wayyyy off.
I'm always surprised at how people don't notice I'm stressing/working my butt off in the show ring. We look so calm and quiet and effortless but that is not the case! People told me we did excellent (and we must've, we clean up the ribbons!) but I'm just not satisfied with that because I feel like we weren't doing the best we could. I found that I look at shows as if I'm competing with myself, trying to get the amazing class, and I could care less about who I beat. I'm just a perfectionist that way I supppose.
And now I'm ranting. See what this does to me?! Lol.
