Because everyone at my barn is a perfect rider with perfect horses
and reading blogs
makes me feel better
I am a greenie, my horse is a greenie - I know these things. But at times I beat myself up because I am still working on riding the canter. No one else at my barn has that basic to work on (ok, maybe one other person, but her horse is totally not a greenie).
So I spend many drives home feeling low, even though I know my expectations are sometimes set very high. I love reading all the blogs I follow, esp those who have young and/or green horses, and reaffirm that others have the same struggles.
I have another lesson with JC on Sunday morning - very much looking forward to it. And, a show a week from Saturday! Yes, I said I was done for the season...but who can resist a November show...in Indiana :) I have entered Intro C and Training Level Test 1 at the November Come Again Farm Show. Several people from JC's barn are going and the show is offering fun classes that my daughter Alexis is going to participate in. Hoping my fingers and toes don't go numb!
