A pat for a good girl from a happy girl!
And if, in the moment, you asked me to tell you about our very first XC schooling lesson went, I would have gushed and smiled. It was fantastic! Oh, we did not jump anything but logs but we did it well!

Maisy, just jumps da jumps. There is no hysteria, no reluctance to leave the group and no bold galloping with some leaping to get back to the herd. She just jumps da jumps! Weird isn't it?

For all you new horse owners (and I do know a few of you), can we get a group hug? When do the surprises stop? When do you know and react effectively?
A Wise Woman listened to my tale and said, "You know, in a year, you'll be laughing at this period and talking about the old "remember whens... And, like delivering a baby, you forget the pain of childbirth and live with the love. It all works out!"
Do you think I can look up our story on Wikipedia? Maybe our Plot Summary can be googled? Gosh, this living life on life's terms is really hard... Where is a Wise Woman when you need one!
Well, she does Jump da Jumps! And do you know what? I actually feel that I can jump them too! And, that IS good!
