Oh Yeah. I've got enough typing to rattle my fingers off. I couldn't get my PC and the wireless at the hotel to agree. Of course not! So Monday night and Tuesday evening I typed up in Word what happened for those days. They'll get blogged just as soon as I remember to copy & paste.
There's plenty to say.
The Barn staff at Banshee was AMAZING! Everyone in the barn took super good care of Ransom, and of me.
The JG Crew was a organized machine, most of the time.
The rest of the cast - pretty cool bunch of ladies.
We learned a TON! I have a bit to try (if 'tis legal in the show ring), I have plenty of exercises to work on, and I won't be bored in my hunt saddle anytime soon.
We did jump, Julie rode him Wednesday AND Thursday, and except for a little speedie n-v-t-s moments, Ransom did great!
I absolutely can't wait to see what it looks like on film. At times, it felt magical, like everything clicked. At other times, I felt like Ransom was leaning on me hanging on his gas pedal, absolutely ignoring anything I tried to do. But we trotted over some poles, we jumped a couple crossrails, and I have three new body positions to practice. I found what "release" means, and I've got a seriously better idea how to reach forward. I almost could touch Ransom's ears in my rides. Neat-O!
more to come... so stay tuned!
