I kinda love this particular collection tho, so hopefully you'll forgive my intense need to share lol.
I like these so much bc they somewhat perfectly summarize my current mental (and maybe physical lol) state. I've got a LOT of plans this weekend. And things are ... maybe humming along ok? Except I have that distinct feeling like one little misstep could send everything awry.
And tomorrow is the fix-a-test clinic at OF. Wherein organizers agreed that I could ride Prelim-A in rising trot. I'm really looking forward to that, especially since the judge has seen me and Isabel go a couple times now, but not since last spring / early summer.
So. Ya know. We've kinda come a long way since then. And I'm eager for feedback.
So why am I so worried about that one little misstep? Eh. Idk, really. Maybe it's some vague carry over from literally misstepping out of my trailer and breaking my leg?
Or, uh, maybe it's more specific. Like how I kinda accidentally sorta maybe fried Isabel's brain last night attempting to do those little shallow canter loop thingys in WAY too small of an area. Oops.
I mean, she was good and neither of us had a melt down or anything.... But it wasn't pretty and I would have been better served by simply moving on to something else. And it ultimately (tho prematurely) concluded our ride, since not much else was gonna happen after that.
We'll see, tho. Isabel is famous (to me, at least haha) for pulling it together for an audience - she LOVES putting on a show. So hopefully our less-than-stellar school last night will be erased from memory and we'll knock the socks off all those giant fancy warmbloods :D
Do you have a very busy weekend too? It always feels like everything suddenly becomes double booked at the first sign of spring lol.
