|Ellie is also tired. And moments later put her face in that pile of poop.|
Lauren or Kristen's blog posts had yet to be published, where they discuss body-shaming both in the show ring and out, and truth was I felt a little self conscious being judged on solely on my equitation amidst a group of svelte riders. I know Ellie looks good....but me?
Well wouldn't you know? We came out second. A huge burst of confidence in my flatwork.
We ended our Sonoma Show with the 2'-2'3" Medal. We were having a nice ride, a little cross canter in our bending line. But that lone, last oxer struck again. Coming out of the turn I just couldn't feel a rythmn. Too fast? Too slow? Whatever, just kicked for it.
And I lost my stirrup. Truth. It's in the video.
Overall we had a lovely time! Already looking forward to next year!
