I hope this isn't too many pics for one post. We had a great day schooling for XC yesterday. The jumps were all smallish and inviting, and everyone who went had lots of success. And today was the first hunter pace of the season (one of my favorite things to do on a horse!). Most of the good jumps at the pace were in the woods, so the only one I really have is pretty blurry.
So here's what I see now that I am looking at the pictures...i WAY overjump! I even try to think about it going right up to the fence, and then bam! I must push my body up there instead of waiting for the jump of the horse to push me out of the saddle I will keep working...on an up-note Samson did so great both days! The only thing he refused was a silly tiny log at the very beginning of yesterday's ride. He did so well and was so reliable we even used him to guide some more nervous horses over fences. Such a good boy!
OK, here are the pics.

I told you they were all small!
