But it still looks just about right…
It’s so confusing, isn’t it?
Our rides lately haven’t felt at all like I would want them to. Way too much “stuff” going on. Way too little “other stuff” going on.
Posting lightly, driving forward, trying not to nag, staying in balance, keeping a light bend to the inside without over bending, not fighting, thinking forward and rewarding the effort when it comes – it still doesn’t feel like it has paid off.
And then, got these pictures of a ride last week, and she looks good! In many of them, Valiosa definitely looks like she has improved a lot. A ton! And there’s new muscle. This is SO nice to see!
So. If you’re sitting at home, deflated and feeling like you’re working way too hard with everything around your barn time, your horse, and your riding. You’re not alone.
