Yesterday my barn trailered over to WV for a jumping lesson. Gracie was er... good over the jumps! (Click here for more on that.) I've just been trotting crossrails with her, and once I did a one stride combo, so the lesson was super fun because we did a 1.) triple one stride combo and 2.) a crossrail to mini oxer combo!
A little early. I believe this was one of the jumps after she took off, so my leg was very defensive.
I'm soo crooked here because we er... almost ran over Sharon White. (she was standing in the center of the oxer and jumped out of the way. We were supposed to stop in front of the jump but Gracie wanted to keep going...) And it was an oxer, which explains why she's over jumping by a foot.
Our main issues of the day were;
1. Gracie taking off 3 times
2. Steering along the rail (because there was no rail, and I kept forgetting that Gracie is still green and didn't understand were the ring ended)
3. Staying straight in the combos
Also, do I need to lean any more forward over the jumps? Or am I okay for the height we're jumping? I didn't get much critique on my position during the lesson. Thanks!
