I'm not positive I'll stick to this whole chronicling my riding thing, but Jen at Cob Jockey suggested I get back into it and I thought I'd give it a go, it being a new year and all. :)
I figured the best way to start my re-entry into blogging was to recap the last year, the dreaded 2020.
Started off the year by traveling (remember traveling?) to Puerto Vallarta. Successfully went whale watching. 10/10 would recommend.
|Still LOVE the Peloton. Use it 5x a week. Excellent investment in health.|
Participated in a ride-a-test at (you guessed it!) 2-1 and scored mid-60s. It was a great lesson and confidence builder. The judge said he and I were absolutely ready for second.
Went to our one and only rated show of the year in beautiful Estes Park We showed 2-1 both days. Scored mid/low 60s the first day and mid/high 60s the second day. My second ride was definitely my better ride with 7s for his medium trot and 10m canter circles. I left the ring feeling a like a million bucks and just so, so proud of Gav.
Took a conformation shot of Gav and compared it to a few years back. I laugh at how differently he's muscled now. Very proud of how this pony has developed.
Canter half pass (lack of understanding)
