It was quite a Grand Prix yesterday. Jumps were blowing down left and right. Amazing how well the horses, riders, and staff handled it so well. Definitely a class to remember. Here is a video of me and Lucky in the jump off:
I love this article below. Not only does it crack me up, but some of it is so true. I think it wasn’t until I started dating Larry that I didn’t lose sleep the night before riding in a grand prix . Not because of how I would perform, but on how I was going to get a jump in the schooling ring! And once I got it, how was I going to keep it. I would even go look at the order of go as soon as it came out to see what trainers I would have to compete with for a jump. I was happy to be first because that meant getting a jump would be easier. Maybe not the jump I wanted but back then I was just happy to have a jump at all. Thank God Larry came around and was bigger than everyone else.
