Did you see the burn pile behind us? It was smoldering away with occasional flare ups. Smoke drifted across the fence line and through the arena.
Lucy held it together for the most part. I was proud of her for that. Her instinct told her to run but she stayed with me.
I even got some relaxed work... here and there.
It would have been even better if I had kept my eyes up...
and my shoulders straight.
Holy smoke, I need a lesson to fix my position. I wish Lucy and I were more fit because right now I don't think we could make it through a lesson.
And you know how I said back in December that I don't care about showing? Um, I lied. Since Lucy got her massage and has been stretching so well across her back, I have started thinking about doing more with her. There is a schooling show series at Sandy's barn. I think I'm going to go to as many of them as I can. I renewed all my memberships and registered Lucy with the USDF.
I'm a woman. I can change my mind.
