Last week was weird crazy. The horses got trimmed and made me REALLY miss my MI farrier. Unfortunately, this farrier does EVERY SINGLE horse in the barn and I don't want to rock the boat, he does okay enough work if I micromanage him. But dude, a trim is not take off ALL the toe and leave all of the heel. Alas.

On Saturday I was supposed to ride with another boarder, MC, and practice some of the XC jumps here at the barn. MC then had to push the ride time back but some severe storms were moving in at exactly the time she wanted to ride so I rode earlier to go xc schooling. That said, it involves 5 logs, 2 ditches and 2 coops in total. Better than nothing I guess!

We finished on a good note over some stadium fences and with lots of good pics. Takeaways? My position is SO much better. I think I need to close my hip just a little more and sink into my heel just a little more and I am good. My position is pretty solid over all jumps, not just a few random jumps. Win!
