I am getting this post in just under the wire as tomorrow there will be a new challenge for the week. But for this week Sophia gave us the photo Challenge of “Looking Back” . I am a believer in not looking back as I am not going that way but here goes.
Here is my equestrian past from the beginning and to the almost present.
I should just mention that in the photo above I was riding a very tall young mare and we had just saluted the judge in our first show. This mare took one look and then did a full 180 degree spin and bolted out of the arena. I turned her around and brought her back into the arena. I asked the judge if I could ride through the test just to give the mare some miles . The judge said:” Yes, but you will have to stay in the arena!” And we did stay in.
And last……the most talented horse I have ever ridden,Biasini in a clinic with Janet Foy in 2019. Biasini has taught me a lot!
