Doing stuff that scares us
So I had to share :) Jesse and I jumped a fourth hole (pretty sure its 2'6") vertical! I have not jumped that high in about a year and lately we have been sticking to smaller jumps it seems. It is also no-stirrup November :P which is a pain and something I am nervous about. However despite being scared to do these things, when I accomplish them... the feeling of pride afterwards is immense! Its times like these that remind me why I love riding and challenging myself.
Also I have to say the girls I was riding with were amazing. I said I was a bit nervous about jumping that high and they cheered me on and coaxed me :)
I must say I feel quite brave and I think I will try a short canter without stirrups on Monday.
What are some things that you have done lately that scare you or things you want to do?
