I feel like the last shot is the best of us, I wasnt expecting such a big jump from him. He is still very green (been jumping for about 7 months now) we just started taking away the stride pole, as we are seeing what we need to work on before show season. We start our rides with leg yeilds lots of figure eights, thuaghts of just relaxing, and then always in our jump lesson start with trot poles.
We have our first show in May, we will be showing jumpers. I have not been in the show ring in many years and this iwll my babies first time. We are planning on a few feild trips before the show to see how he does and know what to expect.
I am so proud of my little man! He tries so hard. He is very scopey, my trainer says he could easily go up to 4'3 but we don't wantto make that heinght a career for him so our big picture goal is to show 3'3-3'6 in jumpers....how ever long that takes.
He isnt just a jumper but we are workingon our dressage work alot as well, right now we are doing pretty good at training level and hopefully next year will be at 1st level at home in lessons, weather we can take that to shows then or not we will see.
What do you see?
I know there is alot of work I need to do. Really working on my shoulers. I throw my body to the left to proect my right side (old injuries) and I don't even know it till Im sore after my ride. Also really working on shoulders back...ugh that's a hard one for me. My hands are wide sotimes just cause he is green nad needs confidance, my legs are futher back then I like as he would spring over it with lots of UMPF over it with his front end
