|da fuq you doin' on the ground?|
Now let's back up.... I had planned on jumping all day today. My person was supposed to be home to help reset jumps and take pics and videos, but as usual the restaurant keeps him busy. So I put my vest on and made sure my phone was in my handy pocket in my Kerrits.
Sorry for the crap stills.......
|smooth jump... the last one|
I made sure he was moving off my leg at the trot and instead of cantering around and around we did figure 8s and did simple changes across the diagonal, working both on transitions and on getting our leads. It was all going great. Then I started him over a couple jumps. The one you will see us land in the middle of and take out, we jumped GREAT. PERFECT. SMOOTH. I can't say enough. We did the 1 stride easily and the barrel jump. Easy peasy. So I turn on the camera to record and have proof of our awesomeness and it was all down hill from there. We just fell apart. And as usual it's all my fault. Kid was trying, he really was.
I think Twister thought he was going to get yelled at. But it wasn't his fault one little bit at all! And, after being checked on by Ranger who was very concerned for his mommy, I got back on, popped over the x-rail and did the barrel again and cooled him out. I think Friday or Sunday will be another jumping day. A dressage day and a galloping out day in between. Gotta get our shit together! I need M to sit there and yell at me. It seriously helps!
|Mommy, you ok???|
|redemption. I get back on and do the damn thing even|
when no one is around to make me!
