Since half the name is accountability, I feel obligated to truthfully summarize week 1. Then we'll move quickly onto horse stuff.
For Week 1, I did do the bonus challenge: I fought alongside my husband in a Belegarth practice session. It was surprisingly fun and a good workout to boot!
|Belegarth: medieval combat with foam weapons. Full contact fun.|
Week 2 Bonus Challenge: Add in some 2-point and/or no-stirrup work to your rides this week.
Okay, on to horsie stuff.
This past Friday night we had a lovely trail ride with some of barn gals. T.K (ahead on the right in the photo) was on her horse completely bareback in just a halter and a lead. And there were some serious hills on the trail.
On Saturday we had a great jump lesson, focusing mostly on my positioning. We did a grid and Hemie was a very good boy, handling his first bounce jump with no issue. Only 2 weeks left until the Meadows derby...so excited!
