Things didn't start out too smoothly....
|"let go of my mouth, woman!"|
|serious saddle pad issues all day long to top things off.|
I took a few minutes to regroup because things were definitely not going according to plan. Pole in front of fence? No go. Grab mane? Grab anything? Well, that wasn't working because I couldn't get my ADD mind to focus long enough to actually move my hands towards something to grab once I got up to the jump. After whining to an unsympathetic Hubby, I finally commandeered his belt and buckled it around Robert's neck. I headed back out and began chanting to myself, "Reach for the belt. Reach for the belt."
|reaching for the belt.|
That was the final piece of the puzzle. Once I got a feel for where my hands should be, they just went there all by themselves.
|came in a little funky to this one, but doesn't robert look adorbs?|
|i might have been a tad overzealous at the end...|
