3'7" woohoo!
Only 5 more inches to go until I do my horse justice!

3'7" itself isn't a new achievement, but I've only done verticals of that height... today we did an oxer, and not only that, we ALSO did a one stride double, vertical then oxer. My horse is amazing.

AND, I've been jumping him mostly in a pelham for a while, because he can get a little strong [I use double reins, and can handle them over fences], but today I was jumping in a snaffle. Not one toe out of line, he was amazing. A little strong about stopping, but I don't blame him - I was on a massive adrenaline high, and he was excited too.

An hour later, I'm still shaking, I'm that shocked and pleased. My eq wasn't perfect, not even close, so I'm kind of glad I haven't got any photos, but I was off his mouth and mostly out of his way... just got left behind a couple of times. Hoping to try to get some video next time we jump, but that's probably going to be next weekend, so you'll be waiting a while to see it.

My horse is something else <3
