Yay, 3'9

So lol its kinda funny because like 2 weeks ago I was all excited about doing like 3'6 in a grid and now I did a 3'3-3'9 course hehe I'm really improving fast!! And I even have a perfect auto release which I somehow just naturally do but any was my instructor said it was the best she's ever seen me jump and that next time we do a height lesson were going to go for 4ft !!!! But the horse I lease is a school horse so he hasn't been asked to jump anywhere near 3' for a long time till I started riding him so I'm really proud of him because he wasn't even close to the rail :) hehe I gave him Candy cane flavoured treats, oh and he even did a perfect flying lead change which I've been teaching him how to do them, my instructor was really happy with it though because in July when I first started didn't with her I hadnt jumped more than a super small x and yeah :) sorry done rambling just like super excited!!oh and this summer I my horse will finally be 4 so I get to start training her, I'm supposed to train her western but I havnt done any western in almost a year so I'm kindof debating weather I should try train her to jump instead.... Or my cousin can train her western (just pleasure and trail rides) for now then I can teach her English and jumping when she's older so it's easier on her bones.... Hm idk lol sorry done ranting

Are you saying that because you have lessons 3-4 times a week, you should be able to go from small x rails too 3'9 ft in five months?

It took me there years riding everyday on my own horse + several years before that of riding school horses to jump 1.15 metre. Just sayin'.
