Watchin' it rain. Sunday, I set up jumps. I have the standards and poles to make..
cross rail 8' away
ground pole 8' away
cross rail another 8'
ground pole another 8'
That's all the stuffs I have. :) I didn't get to set it up under delightful conditions. Instead, I set it up under a 2" rainstorm downpour. Yup, that's me. Why wait to do it after it rains, when I can do it in the rain?! I mean, what's the sense in checking the radar?!
Monday, with a little mud in the working circles, I dressed Harley up dressage (after I hosed the mud off), and we worked a bit of dressage things. Our canter work was limited to the dry places, and I let him do the thinking through the little bit of mud. A nice 30 minutes. I had that "gut feeling" I needed to end there.. Good thing. I spent another hour investigating and repairing grounded out hot fence.
Yesterday, I had plans to jump. Harley's fuzzy winter coat, the lack of decent breeze, and the heat index wilted my plans.
Today, a cool(er) front pattern came in. So tonight, we shall try. I think.
If I can talk R into standing there and making the X's into ground poles, and lifting one, let us work it a bit, then lift the other.
