Tuesday night lesson (yes I'm that behind). My bright eyed mare and I worked through some spooky business and got to work. Insert short video of flat work. I love my mare's little paddle trot, and when I manage to pay attention long enough to really hold her in a frame its pretty comfy. Her canter is still hard to relax into, but I will get used to it.
We jumped a little x that clearly wasn't challenging our ponies enough, so it got raised to a bigger x, then a vertical that as I came around the corner suddenly looked mighty big to me. I shut up and we jumped, albeit I was super stiff, but I love my mare because she happily jumps even when I'm wavering in confidence. Wisely no one told me I have moved up into the 2'6" range until I was done.
Boring flat work
Not my best work, but I stayed on, and no crazy bad distances
