A couple days ago I started Apollo over a small x. We had been working on it on the ground but it was my first time doing it under saddle. How does he look?!
I know my stirrups are a hole or two too long therefore my leg isn't in proper position, and my leg is a little loud...he needs a little bump every stride to keep him going. Plus my hands are very low onto his neck...I haven't ridden english, let alone jumped, since last October so that's about 10 months, and more than half that time I wasn't riding because I got hurt after a fall off of my lease horse, and then I bought Apollo in December and let him gain weight and worked on ground work up until April. So we both have only been riding the past 4 months...I've been training him myself from the ground up but am hopefully starting lessons on Mondays to help us :)
