Just yesterday! I had my first proper jumping lesson with my gelding and a jumping trainer in more than a years' time. We had our basics down, but still a lot missing in the technique department, so I wasn't expecting much, besides, I fell the day before during a run-out in gridwork, so my confidence was lacking as well. But, as the lesson progressed, we were jumping a grid with a 80cm high oxer as the last jump, and nor Snickers, nor me had ever jumped oxers of such height before! It was a blast, we learned a lot, I got my confidence back and understood the mistakes that had lead me to falling off the day before. And, what's more, I really appreciated the trainer for making me go beyond my self-set limits and helping me become a more focused rider. Will definitely get more lessons from her, it was worth every penny!
I have come a long way, to surrender my shadow to the shadow of my horse.
