The impish one is so good to me! Our intermediate dressage was much improved from last time. We still have tons to work on but I am very pleased with our test. Show jumping was a learning experience! I didn't ride him as bold and focused as I should have leading us to not having the best result. All good lessons learned! Ciaran tried super hard for me. I could not have asked for a better horse to learn and lean on. On to tomorrow we go, to do both mine and Ciarans favorite thing! #theimpishone#cantwait#crosscountry#lessonlearned#tomorrow#goodboy#eventing
Well folks, the great migration is complete! We planned it to be around 4800miles but it turned into 6300. The plans also included visiting 14 states but we added 6 for good measure. And surprise, surprise, we somehow managed to throw in a quick trip to Canada! It has been a trip to remember to say the least. But it's not over, not even close... 📷: @tayshedd
hey!! in my last post i said i would post a video of my fails from my tuesday lesson so here they are!! first video: i made the decision to stop in front of the jump because we were coming to it at an angle and we were going to do a rollback from it and i knew it would be very hard to do it from an angle.
second video: my fault, again. i turned wayyy too early in the rollback and we came at it at an angle and we almost ran into the standard.
third video: it was a 2'6 oxer (and i've only jumped 2'6 once, which was just a vertical) and i totally missed our distance and my leg few back. luckily i stayed on and conquered it the next day without any problems!! - jordan #horse#horsebackriding#eventing#equestrian#equine#dressage#crosscountry#horseriding#jumping
So we've made the cross country journey and here's a few thoughts:
Alabama is one giant speed trap.
New Orleans is always a good time.
Texas is too damn big.
Five Guys > In 'N Out
McDonalds is disgusting in any state.
Arizona is actually an awesome state.
The gas prices were $1.95 on the AZ border the instantly jumped to $3.11 once we hit CA.
watching rolex xc was one of the most exciting things ever. so sad that the #bestweekendallyear @rk3de_official event is almost over! i've had such a blast! even if it was a little hot today:) while not everyone had amazing rides today, (even tho tbh if you were able to run even part of a 4* course that's pretty amazing), to everyone who did finish, that was amazing, and literally every pair rocked some part of the course!
Luka with the shield for leading his house to cross country champions of cathedral. Luka won his race as did Ethen we think that Jayde made the school team. Elena was school champion of pimlico and karissa made the school team. GO SQUAD #crosscountry
