|Places I would rather be right now include Ambergris Caye, Belize|
Last night I went to the barn just to turn him out and put his warm blanket on. Then had to stop there again this morning (thanks J for taking care of that!) and pull his blanket so he didn't broil today.
Tonight it was jumping lesson again and a repeat of Sunday's work. I can tell how great this is going to be for me, but man, is it not exciting to work on eq things and rhythm. The biggest points tonight were to keep the bend in my knee at all times - including while posting, cantering, and over fences. My two point is pathetic. I haven't worked on it forever, and it shows. We also worked on me being straight. While this is a pipe dream and will probably never happen, it is good to try.
Fawkes was a rock star. While not necessarily so over fences, he is in general a super honest horse. Do it right, get the right answer. Do it wrong, get angry donkey response. R is keeping the jumps relatively low and simple while we focus on getting my crap together so Fawkes is just eating it up.
Probably time for a bath now, as being correct is both hard and painful. Love it!
