No stirrups!!!

Rode today. Will ride tomorrow. Had no sleep last night partly tea, partly stress, but still managed to fix a broken floor fan (although I couldn't tell you how I did it, I was half asleep)and stay in the saddle without stirrups. Coach said it was my best yet; probably because I was lumped like a sack of potatoes on Sprite and couldn't fall off. He hinted that I may be allowed free pick of my training horse soon. Although I've had my eye on 17hh PK (dark bay) for quite a while, I am growing very fond of Sprite (chestnut), who at 15hh is still taller than me at her shoulder.
