My new trainer has been having Sandie and I work on jumping through grids, which has been very helpful for both of us! For me, it's helped me not to anticipate the jumps and to "just ride them" instead and not get ahead of Sandie. For her, it's teaching her to "think on her feet" and carry herself over the jumps...once I get her to the base safely and securely of course
Here's a video of the other day, I decided to jump the grid bareback - it was SO much fun!!
Enjoy! Oh and for those of you who don't know Sandie and I, here are questions we normally get asked haha!
