Eek! I have my first jumping lesson since forever next week, and I'm terrified now. How the $^#$ did your horses get over those jumps? That must've been scary.
Yesterday I had a great lesson. We worked on stopping and adding in the lines so he had to listen to the distance I picked. This was NOT easy, he prefers a 14 foot stride and can count. Even if the distance would be perfect on the add, he wanted to leap out in the 'correct' number. "You stupid girl, this is a six stride, not a seven!" Lol, he's so much fun! I've never ridden a horse who can add and take out without feeling any different!
