Just another reason to #BeLikeBeezie, am I right?
You know those people who naturally have this ability to see the right distance every single time? Yeah… I don’t like those people. Mostly because I am not one of them. I am the queen of the long spot, the distance that makes people cringe and watch through squinted eyes. Thankfully I am getting better at gauging my pace and finding the rhythm, but I am not always perfect. When you think about it though, who is?
I always thought the pros I look up to were perfect. How often do you see the McLain Wards and Beezie Maddens of the world galloping up to a big ole chip? While it isn’t as often as my holy mother of pearl long spots, Beezie recently took a step back from being amazing to remind us all that sometimes chips happen.
So remember — no rider is perfect, no matter how many medals they have won. And when you find yourself in a sticky situation, dig in and get it done and praise your pony afterwards!
