Week before last....
Wednesday - Lesson bright and early. Rode Holly with Magic's owner. Holly wasn't thrilled with the folded up liverpool on the side of the outdoor, nor was Magic, but other then that she was good. We did lots of trotting, working on straightness and pace, then went back and forth over the surprisingly hard ground pole (insert eye roll). Nothing super exciting. Always nice watching Magic's owner ride him, he pulls the same crap, but she's much more assertive with him, so it always reminds me to get after him. We both went for a walk around the property with only a little fussing, and no spooking.

Saturday- I rode Magic with the ladies. L rode, even sore, like the pro she is, and Karley had her hands full with some tight turned fun on Henry-no-brakes. I felt super nauseous (which I found out my coworker from that night before also had gone home feeling that way too). I think a big part of it was all the patients coming in to my work with nausea/ vomiting, there's a certain since of impending illness when surrounded by retching people for 8 hours at a time.
|Baby warm up jump|
So in between dry heaving, I managed some decent jumping. My trainer in all her sympathy only made me go a few times, just apparently higher then I've jumped before (2'6"). :P
Its funny, I have been all why-am-I-jumping-I'm-too-chicken thoughts again, but really I've jumped better lately then ever. Fake it til ya make it I guess.
