Last week was not one to write home about. For one reason or another my rides were disappointing. Annie and I seemed to be getting no where with our rides which isn’t super confidence instilling when our next event is in 2 weeks. I tried lunging in the faux-ssoa rig, riding outside of the arena, jumping… You name it. I have had frustrating times with Annie but this week was by far the worst.
Then the opportunity to ride in a hunter pace came up. There was much internal debate. I didn’t want to ride a fiery dragon in a new place. Annie is always so good on new adventures that I took the chance and hoped that some good simple fun would be just what we needed to get out of our funk.
Thankfully it was just what we needed and Annie was a super star. I am so glad that I didn’t pass up the opportunity. I might actually try to get out with the club that hosted the hunter pace more this season which would be really fun! I hope that I can get out to more things like this because I know it would be great for Annie’s brain!
What kind of stuff do you all like to get out to for a nice reset?
