L jumped 3' for the first time today! Thumper was, as always, perfect. L've been jumping him in my trainer's pelham for the past couple months, and l think it really gave me the confidence l need to get him to pay attention. We've dropped the pelham, now, and l jumped him in the snaffle for the first time in a while today!
With him, you know you're doing something wrong when he speeds up. Lf you ride effectively, he's the best horse there is to teach you the ropes :). Soo, my trainer put the fences up to 3' today! We've been schooling 2'6 solidly unless l psych myself out, which l do. According to my instructor, l have the skills to move up, l just don't have the psychological part of it down yet :). So she didn't tell me until after my lesson when she measured the jump heights for my benefit :). (l probably wouldn't have believed her otherwise!)
Thumper's so good to me; he puts up with all of my sloppy riding lol.
