Alright, well I rode yesterday and was very conscientious about my riding and what we did. Warming up, I did a lot of transitions, circles and serpentines. I rode in the D ring snaffle and I set up a one stride line starting at 2'. I had two poles perpendicular to the first one to encourage her to keep in the middle and then I had a canter pole after the second one to discourage her from galloping afterward. I went over the line at 2' a few times, making her stop before we got to the wall, then backed a few steps then allowed her to go forward. After a few times of this, I raised the jumps a bit, kept doing this until the second was at 3' and the first was at 2'6". Then, I did some figure 8s by skipping the first jump and taking the second at an angle, then making a loop around and taking the first at an angle. THEN, to test and see if she'd rush, I merged the jumps into a 2'9" square oxer and jumped it. I was afraid she wasn't rushing the line because I put so many things in place to prevent rushing, but she didn't rush it at all! Neither before nor after! I took it a couple times before calling it quits. I was very happy. :)
