Holy cow, between work and family stuff going on this week I am truly shocked I managed to squeeze in 4 rides on O; two of which were lessons. The most eventful ride of them, was the “supposed” easy ride that turned into a full on meltdown. I did NOT give her the attention she needed, and in return I got a very snotty, tense horse that did not want to be partners. I felt horrible, but managed to drag myself together towards the end. We finished well, but our happy, light hearted hack, turned into a battle. Such a hot mess!
On the plus side I whipped myself into better mental shape, and came out firing for my lesson today and she responded by really coming thru today! One week until our very first show! Very exciting!
