I got to ride quite a bit this week and I am grateful to have made those happy memories before she leaves. Natalie, Comic's owner, and I went on a long trail ride a few nights ago and Lucy was a dream to ride. We also jumped everything in the XC area and had a little jump school in the ring. She was excellent for the XC jumps but really kind of a terror for the jumps in the ring. They were tiny because I didn't want to do anything too risky since she was scheduled to be leaving, and I think she just did not take anything seriously. She was very strong and a bit rude...sigh.
Here are some pictures from the past week. I'll update after we move her today. I hope she gets on the trailer and behaves herself!
|This was an awesome tight bending line from this x-rail to a vertical with about|
five strides between them. She aced it!
|Kenny took these beautiful photos for me. The light was exquisite.|
|I love the halo of light around her ears in this photo|
