Another great lesson for Jack! I wrapped my ankle and rode in my trainers Antares saddle and so things went a lot better for me too. I guess I am getting convinced that a different saddle will be beneficial.
I talked to an Antares rep yesterday about finding a used one. I'm hoping I can sell my R Pessoa for a decent price since it's practically in perfect shape since I take good care of my stuff and it's only a year old. The hard part is that I have to sell my saddle to decide what my budget is for the used saddle. Huh, that sounds like a familiar conundrum. lol.
The other cool news is that my trainer is going to a local WHJA show next weekend and wants me to take Jack. That's right, I've owned him less than a month and we are going to our first show already! We need to get him some exposure at a less expensive show since he's never been to a show and I'd rather not test him out at an A show. I'm sure that about an hour there and 1 time in the ring is all he will need, but why risk it.
Oh, and side note, I can't jump cavalettis worth a darned. Put some standards next to them and I'm fine, but a cavaletti? Forget it. oh, well.
