Today’s training was Prince Popgun‘s third ever jumptraining. And we learned a lot.
Popgun was enthusiastic as always and tried his very best dispite not really knowing what he was supposed to do. I on the other hand felt quite stupid and like I had never sat on a horse before.
Let me be completly clear.
We made a lot of mistakes, and practically all of them were due to me not properly helping him understand what we were supposed to do.
I don’t usually cry after I ride but today I couldn’t really stop myself. Silly, I know.
I know we are both new to jumping and that it is nothing at all like Endurance. But I just felt like I could have done better. And that we had better flow last time.
My first thought was that I never wanted to do this again. But on the 40 minute walk back to the stable I remembered how much fun he had last time. We both thought it was great, dispite some minor miscommunications.
I know that I shouldn’t give up so easily and that nothing great comes without a little effort so we will go to next weeks training as well. And try not to be so incredibly hard on myself as I can be.
After all, I would never push or expect as much from anyone else. So I shouldn’t expect this much from myself, right?
Nobody is good at everything without practice. So please don’t laugh too much when you look at the video.
