I am thrilled with Lucy after today's ride. She started out great, but once we got to the canter she got a little bit stupid. I brought her back, tried again, and she persisted with the leaping around nonsense. I got off and lunged her and boy oh boy did she have a lot of pent up energy! I think she felt much better after she had a chance to get that all out of her system. When I got back on, she was a totally different horse: so easygoing, happy, etc. It was wonderful! We even did some crossrails!
Here's a video:
My friend Claire was recording for me while she was holding her horse, Boe. Somewhere in the middle of the ride he got a bit bored and decided to have a roll, fully tacked-up!!!
Here are some stills from the jumps:
I have always struggled with my jumping position and I have got to say that I am really pleased with how well I was able to keep it together today :)
And we also took condition photos today:
