@SirComet -- Thank you very much. That was actually the first time he had jumped that day (It was a warm-up round, which is why I was allowed to take it twice. I hated jumping him that high as his first, but we got there a bit late, so we didn't really have options :c We warmed up on the flat well). Therefore, I wanted to take that course as easily as possible. It clearly didn't turn out that way, but I wasn't about to fly around the course like a bat out of he!! Just to snag a ribbon. He is extremely fun to ride, and thank you for your lovely compliments! :)
@KWPNowner -- Thank you very much for your input. My trainer did say that the main problem was me dropping my shoulders, which is a HUGE problem for me. Any tips on helping that?
Okay, sit back, wait for him to jump, got it. Keep the pace *through* the turn. Okay, thank you very much. I will keep that in mind!
@Tiny -- Aw, such great compliments from such a great Forum-er! Thank you so much :)
@Celeste -- Oh come on, you and Kai could totally rock that course! I can see it!
@Puck -- Thank you very much for the test, I will definitely try that and see where I'm at. Find it hard to believe that I am above your skill level though, you are simply a fabulous rider from what I've seen!
