God I love videos. They don’t lie and are great teachers. Now to the videos and some takeaways.
First 2’6” Class:
-I should add leg when I feel her hesitate (stop at jump 1)
-Our left to right lead change isn’t there on course
-I ride defensively
-I love our approach to the single on the diagonal and I think she jumps really cute
-Opps, too much whoa down the far outside and we get a little long
Second 2’6” Class:
-The ride down the diagonal line is lovely
-That translates into a quieter lead change
-Now that I watch this I feel like the whole time I’m letting her build up
-So I get a tight one on the diagonal line
-Followed by a LOUD lead change which I didn’t help to support
-Our left to right lead change isn’t there on course (suckiness)
At the end of the day right now it’s about building our confidence together and I do feel like this show helped that. Very proud of my pony.
