As Spring quickly turned into Summer, Jean-Luc and I have found time to quickly evolve and hone our skills. Though I have had a rather large break in writing, that doesn't mean we've taken a break in riding by any means.
In fact, when I to myself, "Maybe i should blog now?" I then changed the thought to, "Why don't I go ride now instead?" So that's just what I did.
The Buns of Steel competition has me at 39 hours in the saddle since April 10th (sh), but doesn't count time on the ground. The time on the ground and slow work learning to control our legs / move away from pressure would have to be our biggest accomplishments. It's slow going but the class I now dotingly call "Cowboy Class with Mike Hurst" has truly helped build confidence and get me to where I want to be.
Where is that exactly? Well, for the first time since Jean-Luc and I have been together we went on a solo ride several miles away from the barn. It is literally as far as I can go on property without hitting a ton of car, or highway traffic. Sure, he wanted to turn around several times, and sure we haven't done it but once, but I now know that it is possible and WE CAN.
My name is Chelsey.
Generator's Cuevo Gold, or as he's known around this barn, "Jean-Luc Ponycard", was foaled in 2004 from Generator's Hurricane & Cheyenne's Little Bit.
