Which probably doesn't sound that hard.
To make that happen, these things had to come together:
- Let baby zb grow up with enough proprioception to move across uneven ground safely
- Develop her canter to something balanced enough to do on uneven ground safely
- Learn to feel confident and relaxed enough riding bareback that I don't just slide off
- Show up to the barn when the sun is up

Ms. Zoebird is a lovely trotting horse. It wasn't until she spent the better part of this year in pro training and can comfortably do a first level test that I actually felt confident enough with her canter that I wanted to take it out in the field regularly. Prior to this year, she required such a high level of fitness to do it that yeah I didn't make it happen.
It still never felt like something I wanted to do tho. I'm not about forcing my hobbies anymore. I can have goals, but if I don't get on and immediately think "this is a good idea", I just don't do it. Let's just say that when I sat on my very round horse in exercise tights, cantering never seemed like a super great plan.
I'm a long ways out of the trendy horse world right now, but I have a fabulous group of friends who kept saying "brockamp pad" like it was some sort of voodoo that would help me.
I'm all in favor of voodoo, but 0/10 do long lead times on non-custom items.
And then I found this:
So that happened.

Naturally, I dragged Alyssa out to the barn with me immediately.
