My name is Lauren and I can’t word today. Tomorrow isn’t looking good either, so let’s look at pictures of Simon.
As I may have mentioned, Simon and I will be returning to the hunter ring for (at least) the first show of the year…which is in about three weeks. I doubt this move will shock the equestrian world, since it’s not like we were exactly campaigning for Rio, but right now I am enjoying work on polish and relaxation. Sometimes, we’re pretty successful.
Other times… not so much.
Here’s the thing about hunters – I get my easy to remember courses and deep corners, but I also have to be straight and consistent and do lead changes.
Do you know how hard it is to go straight?
Or keep a consistent pace (especially when your horse occasionally INSISTS on adding)?
We don’t even need to talk about lead changes.
The overall story is, things are definitely getting better. Sometimes I have a whole line where I settle in front of the jump, float my reins and enjoy my lovely horse.
… and then this happens.
Oh well. We’re a work in progress.
