XC Lesson - Pictures -
I had a cross country lesson with Aamelia today, we rode nicely :) Then Aamelia hopped on and worked him. Neither of us ralized he had open fronts on (I was meant to have an SJ lesson). But we both were very shocked afterwards and felt very bad when we realized they were on. No comments on this please! No critique - lesson!
Warm up :)

Tiny tyre jump :)
Bank with added polls - Chinga tends to fall down it :)
The lizard Aamelia found!
Nice loggie, good landing ( for once ).
Cantering and getting too excited.

Focusing on my realease. Forgetting about my legs.

Up the hill :)
Posing on the hill .

Now - Aamelia said she will prove her point that if I don't keep my heels down I'll fall off. She proved it.
I was okay, got on, learnt from my mistake and rode the same jump again.

Same log.
Next log. GOOD BOY!

Bankie - First bank I've gone down in my life, him too.

Up the stairs we go.
Biggest bank, I struggled to get him over this. Three refusals. My fault - I wasn't riding him into them :(

Our last jump.

Aamelia's go - She hasn't ridden in 7 weeks. No critique.
Jumping massive. Naughty horsie.

He tried to put her on it -_-Naughty.

Give whom, Aamelia? I did have a long thingo typed up on how wonderful she is but it kept not posting. She knows how wonderful she is :) But she really is turning both Chinga and I a compete circle. His such a lovely horse to ride now. We've all put hours off work into him and it makes me so proud when I watch Aamelia put all of his potential together and jump him over big stuff or when she rides him around the dressage arena and he looks STUNNING :). They *Aamelia and Chinga* never fail to meet and exceed my expectations. Without her we'd still be dreaming about XC instead of being on it. We're working on my realease at the moment, because as you can see I have NONE. Its great that we are on holidays because it means I get to ride with a super coach, at super facilities on a super horse more offern. Its been a very very long road to get him here and I am truely looking forward to the future on this horse. So many coaches have helped us get this far but really our dressage and jumping is purely down to Aamelia. She's not a quite coach, she yells, she pushes. But she is incredibly enthusiastic.

When I fell off over the XC jump it went something like:
"**** are you okay!?"
*Gives Aamelia thumbs up*

Or when I rode a shocking line and had a horrible jump, she looked at me and I go:
"How about you don't say anything and I do it again".
