Wow. It is truly amazing how the passing of time changes one’s perspective. And how video really changes one’s perspective!
For as much as I was flustered/upset/embarrassed/emo over our stadium jumping warm-up and competition round, I found myself giggling the whole time while watching the video. With plenty of clucking at my past self for us to move. forward. darnit.
I recommend listening to the hilarious soundtrack while watching. Without further ado…
So, I guess it wasn’t quite as horrendous as it felt. My horse was acting more like a bouncy bunny rabbit, but that is a problem that we’ve had in the past and it resurfaced due to stress. I’m confident we will address that. The main takeaway for myself from watching this video is: As soon as you can, encourage forward. Don’t let shenanigans distract you from riding forward ASAP.
I’ll post video of dressage along with scoresheets soon. XC video isn’t available yet.
