#EventerFailFriday: Can I Get an Extra Side of Failsauce, Please?

You guys have been hard at work on the fails this week, great job! Thank you for bringing a joyful little cringe into our lives on an otherwise humdrum Friday homestretch. Remember: The road to success is paved with fail, which means every last one of you (and many of us reading this, if we’re doing it right) are full-speed ahead.

Unfortunately for me, What started out as a fabulous outing at Otter Creek ended rather soggily ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚. We had a fantastic dressage test that gave us a 32.7 and placed us tied for 2nd on Friday. Saturday he warmed up like a champ and jumped the first 3rd of the course in great style. The water was very busy resulting in spookiness and lack of respect for my leg. Further miscommunication at the water to water fence lead to an unceremonious baptizing and a dirt christened white breeches. ๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ™ƒ Also I had to test my air vest sometime! However I am still utterly thrilled with my boy. He was so good the rest of the weekend and I could have ridden smarter to make sure he really understood the question at hand. Lesson learned! #runfree #builtinlifevest #crosscountry #jumpallthethings #butnotfromastandstillRicky #badidea #eventerproblems #eventersofinstagram #horselife #horseshowproblems #equestrian #equestrianlife #barnlife #hhfeventing #MrShenanigans ๐Ÿ“ทXpress Foto Design
