My lesson was great today! Mabou looked pretty sleepy beforehand but he certainly woke up as soon as we started jumping!
We did a few courses with the jumps set at 2’9″- 3′, and really worked on me being straight. My problem is that my right shoulder is more forward then my left… which I adamantly blame on the fact that I sit at a desk all day writing with my right arm forward and using my mouse with my right arm forward. Soooo basically I need to quit my job to better my riding. His lead changes were excellent though, so at least I must have been somewhat centered for those.
I also broke out my new black monogrammed saddle pad! Love it!! Today I ordered a helmet monogram and a horse jumping monogram decal for my Macbook and iron on monograms for my TS breeches! Monogram crazy today!
I just finished reading a new book recently, and since I am always looking for good horse books (and maybe you guys are too) I thought I should share! It’s called Ambition by Natalie Keller Reinert and it is about a young eventing trainer. I couldn’t put it down, the author did a great job capturing the accurate equestrian experience. I got it from Amazon for those who want to check it out!
