What a great time it looks like you had! Congrats on the good ride.
Since you didn't ask for any critique, I will offer none. However, I cringed when I saw stacked cavalettis used as a jump. This is VERY dangerous. If you hit a pole and knock it down, it simply falls flat on the ground and offers little danger (yes, I have seen horses step on them and get injured).
If a cavaletti is knocked down, they roll on their base and still present an obstacle. A horse can get tangled in them and possibly fall or worse, flip. This creates a real danger of serious injury to both horse and rider. This is just my opinion. I will not use them that way. Other trainers do.
