Awwe thanks hun!
I got offered a permanent job at the barn today - sweet. Also found out a certain PSG rider is very interested in training with my coach. Like, trailer for 4 hours both ways for two lessons interested. So that would be awesome as she is one of the sweetest/loyal people ever. It's going to be so cool for her getting to GP. And I'm also hoping that we can get in a bit of a rhythm and start riding together more, especially now that I work at her barn!
Rode Porky today in lieu of not having my own horse. Geh his problems are like the opposite of my horse!! SO not used to sitting on a large, tense, piaffe machine!! Canter-Walk transitions always have at least one step of passage and it drives me nuts. But oh well. It was good to ride! My hips hurt!!
I'm excited to ride on Tuesday!!! I'm hoping that Mr. Rowan has improved his attitude during the flying changes, and that we can do them with slightly less ass-in-the-air... Just a nice, level change is all I want! (and then 5 in a row, every four strides...)
ANDDDD I found the boots I want. Konig Patent Grandgester Boots
Konig Grandgester PATENT (!!) boots. I love shiny boots, but hate making them that way. Patent leather FTW!
I won't be getting them for a while, because they are about $1250 on that site, and getting them in NA I would imagine would cost $1500 ish... So I'm going to make nice with the tack store people and count my pennies!! Maybe that's my present for next year :P And a tailcoat too? That's only an extra $600... Lol.
Dressage is an expensive sport, GET USED TO IT!
