Here We Go!

As you may have noticed, Hilary and L. Williams are hosting this year's round of the Two Point Challenge. I wasn't going to participate, given that my ride is a whopping two months off the track.

But then I realized that my riding really needs it. Plus I have a buddy to do it with. Plus if there's anything a racehorse can do, it's let people two point over him.



Because we're badass
So we're in. We took our baseline time today in the cold blowing wind. The little man was perfect and I shocked myself by getting 5:38 for my start time. Yikes. I'm going to have to bust my butt to get most improved.





Possibly the most interesting video in the world:


Not only was the little man a star to two point around on, but he's also feeling GREAT post bodywork. The practitioner said it would take him a while to really trust the adjustments, and yeah. He's like a different horse, but his brain is just as awesome as ever. I am loving his new willingness to reach out and cover ground with those long legs of his. Winning!!

Who else is down for the two point challenge? Am I the only one on a green horse?

  1. Gunna try and get my baseline tonight! And I'm not sure if Fiction is still considered a Greenie, but he's most definitely not a packer! :P

  6. Green ponies all around. I have no idea how Brantley is going to take the two-point... Getting his shoes fixed tomorrow so I can get my baseline. I think it's more his baseline vs. my own. I hope it's at least 30 seconds!
