Early Days

Over Fences!

On Saturday I got to ride Justin again, and jumped for the first time since the fall.

I was a nervous starting off, but Justin took care of me and we did several jumps at my normal height (2’3″ – 2’6″). To be honest, I was less of a rider and more of a passenger, but it was fun and safe and next time I’m sure I’ll be a more proactive rider.

Speaking of jumps, here are the photos from the clinic in January.  It’s taken me a long time to post because I’m still pretty emotional about everything. But this blog is an honest account of my journey. And even though the clinic didn’t go well (and ended horribly), there were some good moments. In fact most of the pictures are surprisingly nice.

  3. Hey! So it's come to my attention that Blogger isn't updating/redirecting my old blog to my new one. I'm going around commenting on all the blogs I follow because I don't know how to contact everyone otherwise. My old blog Horses: The Process of Learning is back in action at http://www.mrsashleyandolivia.com. This is some kind of blogger error. But I would love for you to come follow me over there! Thanks girl!!
