Had my first official jumping lesson on Zeus! We did courses of jumps less than a foot high but we were too lazy to change them and it was only my third time jumping him over anything. He was wonderful! He got a little heavy sometimes, like he does, and so I was at liberty to throw in as many circles as I needed throughout the course. It was super nice. My trainer was pleased in general with how I rode him. I have a feeling that I overjumped a teeny bit but I was never sure whether he'd jump big or not since I'm not quite that used to his jump yet. He's so round over jumps, it's a nice feeling. He never trotted over a single fence even though they were so little some were more like ground poles. And the main thing she said when I asked how I looked was what I mentioned, but that I was in no way hindering him and was very effective. I also need to work on not throwing his face away over the jumps. But for now, it's better than catching him in the mouth. I want to start getting a jump lesson every other week. It's from the same trainer who I get dressage lessons from. She's wonderful.
I'm going to try and get some pictures or a video the little jumps this weekend.
Because I really want to see for myself how I look.
