I’ve been a bit quiet again, listening to more audiobooks (currently on The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand – thank you Rory Gilmore).
What’s that, though? I have some exciting news I might have failed to mention? I might have been slacking on the running front, but I’ve started running with a small group of other people again!
But that’s not all! Not only have I run with other people again, but I’ve also ridden for the first time since 11th March too! Reunited with my favourite Teddy bear, the lesson focused on transitions over the centre line and working without stirrups (normally I’m not too keen on trotting without stirrups as I tend to tense up and grip, but I think I was much more relaxed this time). That said, my arms were too tight, and I know I’ve got a lot to work on, including keeping impulsion through turns!
You might be wondering why I’m telling you all of this. Finally, the exciting news you’ve all been waiting for.
Just to keep you on your toes, if you’ve got this far, you’ll be as excited as I am to know that I’m off for an interview and trial week for a level 2 equestrian apprenticeship position I’ve applied for!! I don’t know if I’ll be allowed to share anything from the week, but I know it’ll be an amazing opportunity, even if I don’t end up getting the position, but I’ll keep my fingers and toes crossed!
