So Friday night I had a jumping lesson, it went super!
Ollie was forward and actually pretty amped up. We got over the thought that the arena door might eat him every time he passed clockwise and had him supple and soft in the canter, then did some amazing strechy trot circles!! Best strechy trot circles ever!
We had a bounce going into a one stride and had been working over each fence as a single so he could be confidant when we went through it with all three fences up. We had the bounce as 2ft cross rails with a placement pole and the one stride fence was 2ft vertical with placement pole.
We had gone up and down over the line but then about the 3rd time going down he got very strong and after the bounce he droped his outside shoulder so fast and ducked out, it all happened so fast and I have no clue how I stayed on but I did! I kept him forward re gathered myself and put him threw it again and he was a good boy but whew after that I could feel my back tighten! And spasm! I think I wouldn't hurt as much as I do now if I had gone into the wall!
It's now 10pm Sunday night and iv had the heating pad on my back all night and when I was driving I had the heated seat on high.
I was so stiff and sore Saturday I had someone offer to ride Oliver and took them up on their offer, he wads very good boy and my trainer gave them a lesson.
Gah iv never been so stiff and sore for so long after what seems so minor...suggestions?
