I don't post stuff in here that often but I really wanted to share Candi's progress with you all.
Here was a post in the picture section from last week. Check out the photos there. How are we doing? Candi and I today!
Then scroll down for her first time jumping today, since last year before her surgery. She didnt jump last year but maybe 6 times or so. Before that she had never done any jumping nor did anyone ride her.
She did really well today! She is fiiguring out how to use her body. I feel she is good pushing from behind but hopefully will figure out to lift her shoulders and forearms more.
My trainer and I cannot be more pleased with her progress.
This all come after a few months of struggling with a different trainer. In a short amount of time Candi is doing way way better. Cantering both directions now which is a very large issue I had with the previous trainer.
Oh that is not me riding her in the jumping photos. Not sure if I will jump x rails tomorrow in my lesson or not but can try to get a photo.
I am super super excited at this point! I know we at the very least will get to ride in a few flat classes this summer but with her doing x rails now we may get to even do that too!
One day at a time tho....
