she enjoys having the choice of grass or hay... or both lol
Isabel was very relaxed for everything, too. I'll give the full details later (too tired right now), but suffice it to say she was settled, seemed to at least try (a little bit) for our flat work, and jumped extremely well.
despite its grandfatherly appearance, the cap is SO useful for packing
So I fulfilled one of my two goals: We had our personal best dressage score! 39.0!! I'm sure this doesn't seem like much... but to me it's pretty cool to finally break into the 30s. One day we'll be more solid on the flat... but for now we are slowly chipping away.
one of us is ready. one is feeling a tad world-weary lol.
Regarding my other goal: Finish with a number, not a letter... Not quite so successful there. Isabel was jumping beautifully (again, more on this later) and had a lovely rhythm cross country.
But... then I fell off when she stopped at some deep mud. Uh, oops? I guess she thought it was too icky or something. It was a very gentle fall, tho - in fact I landed on my feet.. but it spelled the end of our day.
I've got way more pics and some video to share later so stay tuned!
also, somebody please buy me this from cafepress lol
