Jumped 3'6

So in my lesson the other day we had this kindof bounce line set up, it was like bounce then one stride one stride onestried and then another bounce
X X..... l..... l..... X X. <~ like that and lol it was funny one horse was so slow it got stuck in the middle of the first bounce lol but anyways so my instructor left the bounces as cross rails to whole time and raised the one stride verticals up to about 3'6 by the end of the lesson :) technically 3'7 to be exact but yeah lol. She had me try two different positions going over it, one where I stayed fairly sitting up and then the face in the main, it was really fun. We have also been working on getting my horse to work with his hind end and be rounded and I didn't even have to tell him to be rounded he just did it, it felt like it was easier for him to jump and he looked way more balanced and he even stayed somewhat rounded over the jump instead of sticking his nose all over the place and then at the end when we were cooling off my instructor came and told me it was 3'6 and I was like "really??" haha it sure didn't feel that high and I always thought 3'6 would be scary but it was really fun :) and what made me feel really good was that he didn't keep his head down and he wasnt listening very good with the 2 people that rode him before me and then with me he was so good, I think it's because it's usually me who feeds him his treats and dinner though ;) haha anyways sorry done rambling
