What a great lesson!!!

I had a really bad fall last Saturday, ow. Got dumped right on the jump lol. Was my fault, not Love's. Anyway...

My jumping instructer was busy today, helping fix the roof of their house (South African storms = WOW), so my dressage instructer taught me. She herself is an excellent jumper, she just chose dressage . Now I was a little nervous after my fall last week, so she put the jumps (we only worked with three) right down to about 40cm, and we built it up to 80cm as we went. we worked on my contact today, my hands over fences, and keeping Love Story calm and in the centre, both in trot and in canter. And things went great!!! She didnt overjump or rush once! She was calm and quite the whole time. And I even discovered that my beast of a horse can indeed jump 80cm from a trot (she pretends she cant lol). So now I feel lots better, and cant wait to jump again!

Just thought I'd share

Every girl wants their own LOVE STORY, I found mine... :)
