We’ve got a horse show tomorrow, but I’m still riding the high from some great lessons lately. So regardless of what happens, I’m feeling like the improvement is there. Here’s some little clips of lessons lately…keep an eye out for:
- Staying down and soft on the backside of the jumps.
- Keeping Dee’s shoulders up on approach.
- Attempting to keep my elbows in, less “chicken dance”.
- Making a decision on distances and sticking with it.
Here we go.
I struggled at first (and struggle at the end of the other clip) with getting to this single at an odd stride. But this one was my best ride, and really using my outside rein to keep her body straight. Yay!
Full course, complete with ugly last jump (you can see the second I waffle on my choice & pull). Also-enjoy Dee’s pre-jump grunting! Ha!
So there we are! Happy with our overall picture and excited for what’s next. Wish us luck!
