Smile We reached another new "height" in riding!

Hi everyone!
Well, we jumped our biggest jump so far today! It was 3'6! Woohoo! We found that if we start the jumps out big, my horse jumps wonderfully, so if we lower them once we get moving, he still jumps them like they're big! It seems to work well. He tucks really nice, and didn't even blink an eye at the 3'6 roll top. We even got perfect distances everytime we jumped it. Gah, it was so fun, and really encouraging!

Just thought I would post about an accomplishment =]

OMG! My sister had a lesson right after me and told me that they re-measured it and it was 3'9!!! OMG! That's 3in away from 4'! LOL! And...my sister said that our trainer told her that she was INCREDIBLY proud of me and my horse, and I'm sooo proud of my boy! Wow, just wow!
Ok, I'm done now!
