I wish you were close too!
I could see on the photos that my position was awful (over bent and what was my lower leg doing
) when I get a bit nervous all the lessons go out the window and I forget to sit up and trust her. I have booked some more riding club lessons at this height as I know I need them.
Yes, we have a small One Day Event on Saturday, just an open Pony Club one, but at this height so it was good to see if she was happy to jump proper fences at that height. She LOVES XC an will happily jump 90s which amazed me hen we went schooling. So fingers crossed and I'll report back Saturday evening hopefully
Fortunately the XC part isn't timed (as it is Pony Club I think) and so deciding marks will be on the dressage
which will be to our advantage I hope.
If I can improve my jumping confidence then yes she'll be my little eventer and I think we can do 80s ok and maybe even a 90 one day. If not then I'll stick to dressage which I do enjoy a lot, it just lacks the adrenalin rush you get with XC!
