Just Having Fun
At the end of our not-great test at Loch Moy II in June, Pig and I decided we needed a bit of a win. Any win.
|ARE WE WINNING YET?!|
Jan looked around and suggested we go for a gallop around the Loch Moy xc course. Or maybe go play in the water.
Obviously we chose the water.
|I JUST WANNA DANCE! (But maybe not in the dressage ring today...)|
Pig has never been great about water, so I half expected to be dumped in the mud, white breeches and all.
But Pig surprised me. I guess all the random water we've been tramping through on our trails has helped him become a bit braver about having wet feet.
It only took a small bit of encouragement to get him into the water. In no time at all we were galloping in and out of the pool.
|DAT HIND END DOH|
I felt a little ridiculous for about a half a second. After all, it's a little weird to be decked out in your show gear and playing around in a pond.
|TRAINING LIKE MICHAEL JUNG|
That ridiculous feeling lasted all of about two seconds after we dove into the water. After that, I'm pretty sure only an insane person wouldn't feel giddy with joy.
This was clearly the highlight of both Pig and I's day. I'm so glad we took the time to make a crazy joyful memory at the end of this show.
|The fun crew.|
Anyone ever feel like you need to salvage a day in a joyful way? What did you do?
