I got to ride with Jim Wofford once in June 2009, right towards the end of my time with Dually. Dually and I had had a terrible go at Copper Meadows just over a week earlier and our confidence was pretty low; at Copper he had been so tentative and sucked back in the show jumping, and I was doubting whether he wanted to do this anymore. Within a few minutes with Jimmy he was blasting around like his old self again, jumping better than he had in months and feeling like we could go Advanced the next weekend. I may or may not have almost killed Jimmy at one point when our steering utterly failed in a sunken road, but otherwise it was a massive massive success.
So, when the opportunity opened up to ride with him again, even as far away as York, PA, I jumped at it! I have no idea how Kiki will behave, but that's part of what makes owning her exciting, haha. I jumped for the first time since Huntington on Wednesday and set up a gymnastic from his book, which generally went well though I felt massively rusty and like I couldn't see a distance--worse even than when I first came home from England!! Yikes! I think I was just psyching myself out a bit; if I stay loose and cool over the weekend and don't over think too much (always my biggest problem), I have good reason to believe that all will be well.
