It's only been a couple of weeks with the Pixio in my life, but I can already tell it's changing the way I blog. There's just something more intimate about telling you guys the way something went, and then backing it up with actual footage (well GIFs, but still).
(It's also weird to realize things like the fact that I wore the same outfit to my lesson two weeks in a row. I really don't care and will continue to do that, but the Pixio definitely lends itself to a less curated blog presence in general.)
It's going to allow you to see a lot more of me and my mistakes, and that's okay with me. I'm not a perfect rider, I'm not a naturally talented rider, and I'm not one for avoiding criticism. There's always something more to learn, and there are a lot of accomplished people who read this blog that have gone further in the horse world than I have. Why wouldn't I want to source info from you guys?
(That said, I am NOT going to post GIFs of my trainer riding him - just blurry screenshots. Gotta protect the innocent.)
You're going to get to know us better. You're going to be able to draw your own conclusions and not just read the conclusions I come to for you. You'll see good moments and bad moments and moments that I thought were good but you're going to think "What is she smoking? That was terrible."
As always, be respectful, but feel free to be honest too. It's going to be an interesting period of time getting used to this new way of blogging!
