Yesterday, I hung around HITS all day, and Libby got the day off. She was supposed to get a training ride, but my trainer said the sales ran too late so she would ride her today. I love being around the show here, but it really makes me want to go home and be at the show at home with all my old barn friends.
Today, I also hung around the show, and then went to watch my trainer ride her. Libby was good, but my trainer said she still felt a little sore. My trainer kept saying how its a good thing she switched the show date because Libby wasn’t ready and she didn’t want to push her…. Hm, sounds like something I said to her huh? Anyways, since my photographer friend was there with me, I got some pictures of Lib schooling a bit. Since she was still sore, she didn’t do as much as we had planned for her to do, but still. Sorry that some of the pictures are a bit blurry, don’t know what happened, and like I’ve said before, I do no agree with my trainers decision to not wear a helmet. I always wear mine, only get one brain, but thats her choice. Well, here they are 🙂

I don’t necessarily like her in the gag, I feel like she stretches down through the arc of the jump much more without it, but that was her bit of choice today. Overall I was a little sad that poor Lib is still uncomfortable, but I’m happy that she ended on a good note. I think we just need to give the supplements time to work, and give her time to feel better. Like I said before, I only get one Libby and there are other shows/times I can show her, I just want her to feel like her old self again.
Going out tomorrow to check on her. In other news, I bought my first Extreme Air shirt today! These shirts are so popular right now, and I really wanted one in Burgundy, so when I saw them in the local tack store for cheap I snagged one! Woohoo for deals!
