We've Come Pretty Far

This time last year I might have had a heart attack doing what I did last night. I love that I feel confident enough to tackle whats ahead of me... don't get me wrong, I still think "oh crap" but I am able to focus and just do it.

We rode inside last night cause the daylight isn't there anymore for us to ride and jump outside.

We flatted- sitting trot, shoulder in, posting trot, walk, canter, collecting the canter while also having soft contact.

Then we moved onto jumping. There was a grid of polls to an x that eventually became an oxer. There were guiding rails in the front and on the back of the jump. Henry was like what the heck but thankfully I was awake tonight and rode him well so no stops :) Maybe the fact that we weren't jumping in the dark with the light of the golf cart helped too ;)

Lead changes were eh but hey we are getting better everytime.

Off today, lesson tomorrow, trainer ride Friday and turn out Saturday.
