Tuesday and Wednesday were much better for us. I focused and kept Izzy focused by doing lots and lots of transitions and direction changes. The weather has been miserable (cold, windy and rainy. wtf? this is Idaho) so I haven't ridden a whole lot. Wednesday was our lesson, which went really, really well. We have Izzy jumping the barrel jump pretty reliably. I'm still thinking that for our first upcoming event derby that we'll just stick to the crossrail division, though. I think she's capable of doing the 2'3", but I'm going to keep things low stress.

Sound good? I hope all is well with the rest of you. I've barely been on the internet, so I'm behind again.


  1. Glad things are going better!

  2. Happy to hear you and your girl had a good ride. Jumping is great for young horses as it helps mind and body.

    Entering the lower level jumping class is a good idea. No reason to put extra pressure on yourself when you are just starting out.

  3. WE are having the same weather! It is infuriating. How many forms of water can we get in one week? Fog, rain, mist, drizzle, black clouds, heavy air, YUCK, I am so sick of it. This is June not April, and it's Massachusetts not Oregon!!! I hope it gets drier for you....and for me!
