The silence around here is not due to a lack of posts being written: I am, for once, actually drafting things, taking photos, doing occasional blog-worthy stuff.
My phone, the Blogger app, and my photos are not playing nice together. When I try to add photos to posts, the app crashes. I have not yet found a new app. Suggestions would be delightful - iPhone 6, open to paying a bit for something that works.
The two-point challenge this month has gone spectacularly miserably well when it has gone at all. I got my baseline during Quicksilver (1 minute at a ride: fair). I did my next ride with a section of two-point a week and a half later (3 minutes, 1 second). At this point I can't remember anything about it, but it must have been in the new saddle.
Then we puttered around in the arena for a bit at the trot the next week and made it to 7 minutes 13 seconds and a very bored pony (sorry pony).
Weekend ride with friends.. what better time than to do two-point than when you don't have to steer and you're not the one setting the pace? I picked a fairly flat section to start with after the potential crazy spot, and off we went: 15 minutes, 34 seconds. I felt that. Fingers crossed for another small-group ride this weekend where we can get more of the same.
