hehe, I love how when you get it good for the first time, everyone is like "WHOOOOO, YEAHH!!!" and the second time is just like, "Yeah!" and the third time is when they're like "oh, you need to get your heels down more" xD (not talking about you, just in general xD[the heels down is my trainer talking])

You guys are looking really good though, congrats!

Sorry to hear about your leg Hope it's ok!!
Haha yeah, would love to get some videos with her jumping... one day... if I gain enough confidence to get back up there... I'm hardly a jumper... in fact I'd rather not lol... but it makes my horses happy.
I taught my mare everything she knows... I backed and started her, with the help of my instructor but did most of her riding... until recent when we started to ask more of her... after my freak accident on her... I'm quite nervous... but yes its a definite thrill when they do something new... I almost died from happiness when we cantered for the first time haha!

Good for you for rescuing her! She looks like she is working out amazing for you!

I can't wait to see you guy's advance! I'm sure you guys will get where you are going very quickly. She is a brillant mare with a ton of potential!

haha yeah, that was one of the other boarders who does a lot of jumping...she was giving me pointers and because Sandie kept rushing the jump a little, she said "Sit down and make her halt!" - she said if I halt her right after the jump, then she'd slow down on her approach a little bit I'm so lucky to have this kind of group at the barn, I have a trainer but even when he's not around (like the day I took this video) there are still plenty of people to help me out!!
