Tiny...but it's a start!

I always seem to add blurry pictures, and this video is no exception! It is quite hard to see, but since I have it, I thought I'd put it on here. Now, this may be a tiny weeny little jump, but it's the first obstacle we've jumped since...July? She felt pretty good actually - particularly the second time, when I approached in canter. The stride was good and she seemed to really enjoy it. I have a lesson with John on Saturday and I'm tempted to ask him to help me with my jumping. Thing is...I'm RUBBISH at jumping and I know he'll pull me to pieces. I'll see how resilient I am feeling on the day I think!

We're all rubbish in the beginning. Figuring out what we're doing wrong helps us to get it right, so don't be afraid of finding out what's wrong. It's an important part of the process.

Have a Happy New Year!

Oh she looks so sweet! As long as you have fun, keep it up. I don't think I'm all that good at jumping either, but the more you ride in two point and without stirrups the stronger and more confident you will feel :-)

That looked great! Way to go!

So did you end up working on the jumping in your lesson?

What a lovely trot and steady canter you had going there! Lovely striding coming in and it all looked nice and easy :D

Merry Chrissy and hope 2009 is treating you well! Wow, she really covers some ground in the walk, doesn't she? And the trot for that matter.
