I did "gallop" sets on Tuesday.....
|My new fav pic of us.|
|Dont you love the troxel? Left my CO helmet in Jackies car|
|That white blur is Levi, the dog.|
....and Wednesday Jackie and I spent ALL day at our barns. All day. =Sunburns.
We jumped Yanks just a little bit first, considering I knew he was just slightly ouchy. He sure didn't act like it though, rollbacks, engagement and flllyying over fences. So willing. I swear, if you didn't know Yankee/horses that well, you wouldnt even notice the so very slight hitch in his getalong. (Yes, I was told by the vet up until the injections it was OK to continue riding like normal).
I wasn't riding very well that day actually. I don't really know why but my position sucketh, kept getting left behind and I was all wrong distance wise. Luckily Yankee tolerates his human.
|My face is absolutely ridiculous. What am I doing forreal in this picture...|
|Getting quite left behind..ooops|
|We could toats win some hunter eq if I liked hunters.|
|And then there's this...result of myself whacking up distances.|
Yankee always loves his second mommy on his back too. I actually think he jumped better for her all the verticals which I am insanely jealous of since verticals are my fear/nemisis.
After my barn, we went to Jackie's to school miss mare. I love this horse but sometimes I really can't ride her...like at all. I was on the struggle bus getting her to jump. The key with Isis is light contact...but literally..like, no contact (unless you're her mommy) and I just can't ride like that. My epic failure led to both of us hating each other and Isis shutting down. I couldn't even get her to turn or jump a 2 foot vertical and I was the most upset. I should be able to ride any horse, but I guess I've been spoiled with one beast for 8 years and my ability to "catch ride" has suffered.
|Trying SO hard to give an epic release|
Jackie and mare were of course, a pair, and tackled the new barn fence with some major style. Check it..
|I wish she'd let me ride her with contact, LOLZ|
|Those knees doh>>>|
WE WENT SWIMMING!!! It was terrifying. And fabulous.
I've been one other time with Yankee and it was equally as scary. If you've never done it, you feel like you're about to slide off and die. But it is SO COOL at the same time. We were so proud of Isis for taking us both in! Good mare!
|Me, almost dying.|
