Today I had jumps set out for Little, and Chance decided they were for her. No matter what there was no keeping here away from those jumps, I tried, silly mare. She was very proud of her self to say at the least. Now don't think she was being rude or mean about it. She had a nice canter going and I think she just wanted to make me happy and she just wanted to please me. I had so much fun doing it I mean the jumps were 2' and her not being worked let alone jumped in a month in a 1/2 to be able to do a course so nicely. It was her best course ever seeing that she was doing it herself!
After I finally got her to think about circling at the canter I got off her and praised her. Cause like I said it wasnt her being rude or mean just trying to make me happy. :) She was controlable to where I could slow her down or stop her.. but getting her away from the jump was the not going to happen part. I guess she REALLY missed those jumps. Now lets hope she's still sound by tomorrow.
I feel like this years going to be REALLY good.
Im also taking a dressage lesson on her tomorrow. IF she sounds. If not then ill ride little in it and probably do a jumping lesson. :)
