Thankyou all for your replies.
I rode Jazz today, she did well! I'm really proud about how well she is going for me and she's improved very much over the past few days. We played with a few very low jumps and she went through her first triple!! It was really small, about 20cm high. But I was still very proud of her, the first time she difted to the left and ended up jumping out on the last fence. But the second time she nailed it, went through calmly and quietly. She started getting the idea of sitting trot today as well. Such a gooood little girlie. She's relaxed into ALL her gaits so much. Very proud.
I worked on her ground manners a bit today too and decided the were something I'd like to focus on. She likes to rub and not stand still and of course, this will not be tolerated. But she is a smart pony and I'm sure soon she will work this out. She had a hose today and stood well and quietly, though it was almost dinner time so by the end her behaviour started too drop, so I finished on a good note while I still could.
One thing I am very proud of is the respect she has around food - she never puts a foot wrong.
Thats all for today,
Sir Success. Eventer.
