My barn hosted a schooling show on Saturday and I wound up running one of the in-gates. I managed to keep a relatively organized flow of competitors going in and out of the ring for their over fences rounds and flat classes. The warm weather was nice and not too warm, although I forgot sunscreen on my ears and neck, so I have an interesting burn-then-tan pattern going on right now. I thought I would have the energy to ride after the show, but that was a dumb thought and Eli got the day off.
Sunday, the weather felt very different. Cool, overcast, gusty. Perfect day for a few jumps? I half thought Eli would be more reactive than usual because of the weather, but rather he was foot-perfect. Super simple, quiet enough for the add-steps. This, we can build on.
