Drats

Just one of those rides. Where you get off and are like- I'm a shitty rider. And then you start to wonder why you're even doing it in the first place.

I'm lucky to have good friends to commiserate with, who give good advice, and keep me motivated!

And this cute one....
Full of optimism!

  2. Hate those moments. Never had them until recently either. Luckily they tend to go away after a bit.

    Optimism is good!

  5. The cutest gray girl in all the land! Crappy rides are no fun...but it turns out we usually think it was way worse than it actually was!

  6. I had the same ride last night. We've been schooling 3'-3'3" for months, and since we're only showing 2'6" this weekend Trainer put the jumps down to that height. I suddenly COULD NOT RIDE. Sloppy, crooked, missing distances, the whole shebang. What the freakin hell?

  7. I've stopped trying to figure out why one day I can't ride my way out of paper bag (which begs the question of why I'd be trying to and where did this paper bag come from?) and the next I'm fine. It will continue to be one of life's great mysteries.
