Come backs are tricky.
There was a time
when I had to jump something every day.
if I went two days without jumping a jump
it was like starting over.
one step forward
two steps back
The Fearless Leader at the time
was pretty blunt
He mentioned that I should consider a different sport
more than once
Fortunately, at some point I moved on from that stage.
And I actually, kinda sorta, got to a place where I looked like
I knew what I was doing.
And it stayed with me.
But after a 6 month break
down for the count
you have to wonder
if you still have what it takes
or if you have retained any of your hard fought for skills
With some trepidation
I got back in the saddle
and pointed the ponies
freaking huge properly sized obstacles
So far, it seems like I still know how to do this.
