It is sooo working!
Monday, March 26, 2007
I finished a dressage horse show this weekend, and I am in awe at the changes that have happened to me since last November.
My endurance is up. I used to ride one class with warm up and feel almost too tired to walk back to the barn, so I would ride back. This time, I warmed Falcao up, rode my test, came out of the arena, and hopped off Falcao to reward him for his good work. I walked with him back to the barn.
Another change is the new found ability to control my body while on him so that I can direct him through the test. I can sit an active trot without losing my balance or hanging on his face.
There is still a ways to go to be the rider I want to be, and more wieght to lose, but I am currently soooo happy today. I am not as sore this morning as I thought I would be, and although tired, I can't wait to go out to see Falcao tomorow. Today he needs a day off to recover from all his hard work.
I hereby recommit to living a healthy lifestyle and improving my fitness level and suppleness.
I AM WORTH IT!!!
