Alas, I still am not quite ready to write my long sad tale of woe about what is going on with our jumping lately. Mostly bc I'm an idiot and totally forgot that I was supposed to be in Seattle for most of last week (literally forgot to even book the travel until Monday, to fly out on Tuesday in the early am...#fail). And have been playing catch up ever since.
I've also not even seen the mare since our disaster of a schooling h/j show last weekend (ha, there's some more foreshadowing for ya). Tho thank god for Brita, she's been hacking Isabel around all week so she's not entirely neglected.
|it just feels right|
Organizers were on the ball tho, and found the cover to mail back to me in record time. And I decided to take it as a sign. Recall that little poll I conducted last winter? About whether or not to bedazzle my helmet cover? Honestly, that post was more filler than anything else bc I had a motherfucking broken leg and not a whole lot else to write about...
But when that helmet cover somehow miraculously found its way back to me no worse for the wear? And given how shit-showy things have been for us lately? Well. I decided to just go for it.
We need a little more badassery in our partnership right now.
So that crazy ridiculous fiery little blue horse with a beady red eye and blazing mane and tail is now officially affixed to the cover. Hard to tell exactly when it'll next see the light of day - but whenever it does, I plan to wear it with pride.
|all can't possibly be lost!|
Honestly this lesson was not great either. It was a net positive, but not without low moments (again with the promises of hilarious pics - it's coming, I swear!).
It's cool tho bc the good moments were good. Lesson-mate H derping around in the foreground isn't even enough to distract from Isabel just lookin fanfuckingtastic.
So for now, the plan is to just keep moving forward. Maybe not upward - but definitely onward. Lesson day today will be all about sussing the mare out, likely informing our decision on what to do about our Jenny Camp HT entry tomorrow.
Wish us luck!
