Big thank you to Manfriend for using my camera to sneak some super sweet shots of Francis and I at the show! The pro pics are nice and all, but it was awesome having my own paparazzi.
Greetings! I’m still in Santorini (and then Milos) for a few more days, but I couldn’t resist taking advantage of wifi and sharing some pics so far. Can’t wait to share stories when I get back!
PS- my internet has been wonky for a few days so I’m a little behind, but I’ll be rejoining you as soon as it’s fixed!
The promised photos! All taken by an extremely talented junior at our barn- you should totally check out her Instagram @hgielloh, she posts awesome pics of her and her hunky gelding doing the big eq and super cool shows.
I know I should do what Lauren at She Moved to Texas does and use these photos in my blog posts….but I have absolutely no self control and must share them with you all at once.
Talented photog had to run at this point, but I promise it got better from there. Read my lesson recap if you don’t believe me.
Hope you enjoyed seeing more of the majestic unicorn that is the DragonMare!
I should’ve put this in my post yesterday! I’m clearly a little slow. But this is the turn we were trying yesterday: jump in the first one, then tight rollback right to the rail in front of some standards that were in the way (represented by the white X). We fiddled with our track quite a bit, so these arrows really just give the gist of what direction we were generally aiming to go.
How would you have approached this exercise, both pace and track-wise? What skills would you want in your toolbox to tackle this?
PS: Guys I’m on Twitter now and pretty confused about how it’s supposed to work. But if you want to see me fumble my way through a new social media channel, then find me @hellomylivia!
