We did it! We accepted the challenge!
I set off to establsih my baseline 2-point time after warming up a little. I allowed Fancy Pony to walk around on the buckle, stretching away, while I set up my stopwatch.
You caught that part about "on the buckle", right?
We were also working in this:
|I really do love this saddle!|
So, I hit the button to go to the stopwatch, and it went "beep"
She spun like a reining horse 180 degrees, prepared to take off from whatever monster was coming to kill us!!
However, before I could even get the reins gathered up (remember - on the buckle!), she was back to walking on the rail - just the other direction.
I'm not exactly sure why I didn't just slide right out of that saddle...
But, I'm incredibly proud of the mare for regaining her sanity so nicely! And the next time my watch beeped, she didn't even acknowledge it!
