I missed a weekly post.
I admit it. This month has been a little nuts. So I didn't post about showing last week. I hope I can this week, but I'm not making any promises.
What I will give to you is a promise of lesson videos from tonight. They are downloading right now and I'll have them up tomorrow or Wednesday. It was a great lesson.
So here are some photos of Phil, just to appease you. And because he's cute -
Here is a body shot. He's looking more muscular. I like it.
This is what that cutie did to his sheet today in turnout. That's not as adorable.
I'll also leave you with this -
Yeah, so about that. You know how sometimes you put your half-chaps or boots and and you feel like your full seats are a little pulled down into your boots? So you have to pull them up a little out of your boots so the crotch of your breeches isn't hanging way low? Well, I did that and I totally ripped the breeches. Now, they were really old breeches, like 8 years or something, so I'm not devastated or anything. The problem was, I hadn't ridden yet, didn't have a spare pair of breeches, and wasn't about to skip riding or go home to get a new pair.
Duct tape, of course! My only concern was that the tape would bunch up and come off while I was riding, since it was right on the inside of my knee. Fortunately for me, my legs passed the "ride with an open and soft knee" test and proved to me that I wasn't gripping with my knee. Here is what it looked like after my ride -
I'm pretty happy with myself.
So, what do you think? Anyone else out there willing to take the Duct Tape test? Let me know, I'm interested!
