Don't you love the feeling?

We've been working on getting Ben to use his butt and push off so that he moves uphill and gets off his forehand. We did lots of cavalletis today, making him pick his feet up and keep the impulsion for several strides, then we did some jumping. For the first time, I really could feel him rock back and push off over the jumps, rather then just hop over because they are so tiny (like 2ft) Isn't it such a cool moment when you first feel a young horse get that push?
