    Default Dear GM: My horse gives me wings!

    I had a George Morris-worthy moment jumping my horse 3'3 for the first time in years yesterday, trying to regain some confidence for our Novice debut at the end of the month. I guess I thought if I gave myself wings, I would help him fly over it with soaring confidence? (No pun intended. )

    Fly, my pretty!

    LOL thanks for the chuckle. I haven't jumped in 5 years but soon my green TB will be ready - I can't wait to see what new form embellishments I'll unconciously employ to "help"

    Ah, yes. The chicken flap. Seen it, done it, trying to teach people not to do it.
