It was the other day… actually it’s almost every day. But this isn’t about how weird I am. This is about how ecstatic I was after Tuesday’s lesson.
The new routine:
Step 1: Drag Tucker away from his hay.
Step 2: Drag Tucker away from every bit of food he finds in the aisle.
Step 3: Back Tucker up and down the aisle to work on those Butt muscles and keep that SI joint happy.
Step 4: Massage said butt muscles and his shoulder with the massager John bought him.
Step 5: Groom as normal.
Step 6: Do the shoulder stretches Chiropractor K taught us. Once on each side.
Step 7: Tack up, wake Tucker up from his nap and head to the arena.
Step 8: Tighten girth, lift legs to stretch out any caught skin, redo the shoulder stretches just for shits and giggles.
Step 9: Get on and ask for forward walk on a loose rein. Stretching out is good!
Step 10: GET THE F*** out of your head! Today is a new day. Don’t anticipate what’s going to happen. Just ride.
Step 11: Don’t think about it just trot. Both ways. On a loose rein.
Step 12: Trot both ways with contact. Stop thinking about it.
Step 13: Grin like a mad fool that just won the lottery because you don’t feel any wonky steps.
Step 14: Jump all the jump, lead change all the lead changes, Rock the shit out of everything and pat yourself on the back when you make it through the one stride to one stride gymnastic without giving 2 F***’s.
Step 15: Finish your amazing ride. Get off your wonderful horse that deserves ALL the apples and dance around like said cracked out elf.
