...all my troubles seemed so far away,
now it looks as though they're here to stay...
.... Sorry, channeling my inner hippy with some Beatles.
Really, yesterday was a morning group lesson. It was chilly and still kinda muddy outside, so like 7 or 8 of us were squished into the indoor. We actually did a pretty decent job of spacing out, and no one ran into each other, even with some of our horses scooting and spooking at the open end of the arena. We had to break into two groups to canter, which was kinda nice, getting to actually watch Karley and L ride without worrying about running into anyone.
We did some basic back and forth jumping over an X, then a small vertical. Other then the fact that I was getting left a bit behind since I was posting for some reason right up to the jump, I felt pretty centered in my trainer's Butet. Definitely getting a new saddle :) Holly was really good, not surprising for her 6th day of work (only 1 other jumping). I really have to work at not letting my brain kinda just go into pause mode as I approach a jump. She needs me to help her find a good distance, and gee I kinda have to be present for that. I wish I was quieter looking, but towards then end, when my eyes stayed up, we looked/ felt pretty good.
After I finished, Karley and L did a tight little bounce, and the rest of us went for a hack down to the cross country field and played around. I'm gonna miss being able to hack around once it stays sloppy out.
