Pretty good lesson today. The problems were with me, not Jack so I can't complain. We did a course, which it seems like we haven't really done in a while. Diagonal vertical, outside line in 6, diagonal oxer, all the way around to diagonal from the outside rolling back to oxer, diagonal oxer around to diagonal vertical bending line to oxer in 6. It went pretty well. Found out that Jack absolutely loves swedish oxers! I never would think a horse would like a specific type of jump, but there you have it. After the entire course he was throwing his head around in the horsey equivalent to "weeeee" and my trainer was laughing her butt off.
I need to work on my releases though. I'm just still so uptight right before takeoff that I just don't release properly.
