Good thing too because the human half of the duo was not as on her A game. I rode ok, but made a few dumb mistakes at fences. On the positive learning front, trainer R saw that when I get concerned about what he is going to do in front of a fence I tense slightly and glance down. And that makes Fawkes nervous and more likely to quit. R said it is super subtle and she didn't even notice it until today, but now that she sees it, she thinks getting past that will be a key to getting him (and me) braver.
|We clearly had a disagreement on take off for this fence, but holy hell he is so cute.|
|We ain't never coming down! I honestly don't even remember what I did to merit this one|
