I figured we'd be inside for our saturday lesson, given all the rain. But the indoor at OF is pretty small, and there were six of us in the lesson, plus the rain had already stopped... so plenty enough reasons to stick with the larger outdoor arena.
ick ick ick
Isabel doesn't really care for sloppy conditions, but the footing at OF is a little better than at her home barn, so it worked out ok.
We kept the jumps small to avoid any lapses in confidence.
no worries there, except where goes my toes?
And the courses mostly reflected what we've been working on: bending lines and singles on the diagonal line. Pretty good stuff.
The one jump that everybody nailed off the diagonal was the caution oxer. That is, until I pointed out that everybody was nailing it. Then we proceeded to, uh, not nail it.
they said she could be anything, so she became a carousel horse
Anyways, it was a pretty straight forward lesson. Mostly decent distances, but purposefully not over-challenging given the conditions. One clear thing is my position issues - specifically: wut are my toes doin????? 2pointober plz help.
also, emma: "upon closer inspection, wtf am i doing w my hands????"
