    Goodness Robby-

    I wasn't nervous at all until I opened page 4 and the first thing I read was your eruption of nerves. Now my blood pressure is busting out of my ears.

    Kileyc and I worked on her lengthen trot last night. you guys will be moving up together! Yippee!

    Me, I have to wait another season for the fun stuff...sheesh...babies.

    My horse, this week, has decided that he can no longer lengthen his trot stride. This is a damned shame because he has a bitchin' medium. I hope it revisits us Saturday. At an appropriate time in the test.

    Can't wait to see y'all!

    Have a great time - #1 priority - you both! Since I was thinking it was last weekend, the vibes are still out there, just a little stronger now. Ride, she said!

    Robby, I am rooting for you and your Precious. Most important advice I have for you is to breath!

    Good luck to you all!

    That is sooo funny Robby... lengthen is what I have been working on as well, Army has NO lengthen! But a h*ll of a stretchy trot! Did you see the ride times? You better be ready to lead the way for me and Army... we are about an hour behind you! I want to hear all about how easy stadium and x-country were! Look forward to seeing you Friday night for that toast!!!

    You'll be just fine. Rhodey looks like he could jump the moon. No one ever died from not having a lengthened trot. Just follow the advice in your own signature line.

    Just breath Robby. It's not the end of the world if you don't have a stellar dr test. It's also not the end of the world that you get massive time penalties. As I was panicking last fall while waiting for my go on x-c as there was a hold on course because a rider decided to break his leg on a table, YVEventer said my horse can trot these fences. WHEW! Yes, he can, and yes, we did on some of the combos.
    Take one movement at a time.
    As Jan Thompson said last week on our x-c walk:
    Take one fence at a time.
    Don't remember that last fence you messed up. It's over and done with. Go on to the next one.
    Even duct tape can't fix stupid

    You'll be FINE Robby - the Precious isn't going to want to get his toes clipped by those rails so he'll keep them up, and heavens, he might chip something if he hits a XC fence, so he'll fly over those too.

    Relax, and during your dressage test, stick your stomach out. It's impossible to be tense when you're giggling at yourself trying to do a Santa impression. The real point, of course it that sticking out yoru tummy makes your horse relax too (so his lengthening will return). No one will be able to see that you're trying to do Santa (0r Jack LeGoff, take your pick) so it's just your little secret.

    You must tell us all when you return! And go ahead, have that Newcastle- you'll have nerve'd off all the calories anyway.

    Robby:

    Remember, you've done this before and Rhodey looks like he could jump the moon. I moved up to Training this year for the first time on my horse that I've brought along. If we can do fine, you'll be fine.

    Good luck and we're all waiting for the update on how well things went.
    Nancy!

    I have a question about all this....

    Does Rhodey know that you refer you him as 'Precious' on this forum http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...n_confused.gif

    Might be something to discuss before you head out on cross country http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...on_biggrin.gif
    (much more important than those lengthenings http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...milies/yes.gif)

    Good point.

    Perhaps a re-branding effort is needed.

    Until the weekend is over, he shall be called Barracuda.
