"Today's lesson is sponsored by 'The Correct Lead'"

My first sponsorship. So long adult amateurs.

Haha, no. I could barely sit the trot without stirrups on Wednesday, let alone post. Coach S wasn't happy with how the last show went, so it was all about flatwork. I started out on Oscar, another gray gelding. I typically do well with those. Then it was on to Diego, then Dori, then Murry. Of course, I was the only one who managed to pick up the wrong lead . . . twice. It was a very "ugh" type thing, along with not being able to do anything without stirrups, which I'm usually good at.

So it was a bad lesson, and I was pretty bummed out, but fortunately, Dia and Kal are absolute idiots, and I mean that in the most endearing connotation. Dinner with them made me feel 100% better.


  1. i don't always get my leads wrong, but when i do it's in an important flat class right in front of the judge. naturally lol

  2. Ahhhh, so frustrating! About once a year I have a few months where I temporarily forget how to ask for the correct lead. It's super annoying, haha
