Can be like
bittersweet walnuts dipped in salt crusted chocolate, on waxy paper in the kitchen. A little too much wine on the side.
Good. Sweet, but not overly smothering.
A good ride is, also
Very hard to find…
Depending on which discipline one rides, you are either a half pro after two years of intense horseback riding, – or still a beginner after more than a decade of bouncing around if trying dressage.
Could have been well on my way to successful riding by now. But no, I had to pick dressage!
Which means there might never really be a good ride, or a good seat. Only pity from non-horse friends for “not getting” it after all this time, when they’ve heard it should only take a year or so. (What?!)
Still working on transitions from walk to trot. To get them just so. Yes, pathetic. And boring to watch for others.
Riding Cooper today, thinking of the flubbery, resistant, awkwardly moving gelding of August, and comparing him to this morning – yes, it was a good ride.
We still have our challenges.
Wishing you a good ride today!
