Close friends know I have a penchant for cleaning most things.
Therefore most of the cobwebs in the barn had to come down. It’s a spider mansion so of course they will be back. Soon. But for the day, it was all clean and fresh. At least the lower parts.
Not as fresh, was the riding. So incredibly grateful to have another lesson. Tried to make the best of it for weeks to come. Must be rounder. Coming more from behind. With him, it’s like starting all over riding again. Seat and aids become discombobulated. While some horses will bring out the best in you, some will make you look like a pinching, nutcracking, willowy prune packer. Or a briny clam.
Went with the clam for the day. Not good enough – “Ride like you mean it!” – advice from the ground. That’s what I’ll do for the rest of the month. Nothing less. Especially since we’re going backward, and work less together than in this picture a few weeks back. How is that possible?
Jaworzno, always a love, sporting the cute look.
