A happy, happy post!!!

So, I completely lost my nerve last year (very long and drawn out) but basically mare was PTS, got a youngster OLWVTB who frightened the *@** out of me, then spent a few months touring the country being bucked off by various "they have never done that before" to finally getting my lad at the end of September to discover that I had completely lost my confidence jumping! :( Well today my mate dragged me off to a UK chasers course - I was going to do the water and that was it! Well, one log, three barrel jumps (not huge), five steps and the water of course I am one very happy person and it appears my lad loves x country!!! Still a long way to go.... but!!

Sorry for the gloating post but I think I'm going to burst I'm so chuffed!! :):D
