This past weekend a major milestone was achieved. Ten years of training, and dedicated, hard work. Years and years of developing a partnership, and an understanding of one another. And I finally did it, with my horse, I brought up from a three yr old. Down centerline in our first grand prix test. I am so proud of William and had such a fun time riding through it. Nothing brilliant, but I felt a sense of ease flowing through the test. All the doubt about whether William or I was ready melted away when I was riding the test. I remember thinking to myself in the middle of the test "William and I can totally do this! ". Looking forward to cleaning up the test and improving this season.
