After the silliness of yesterday, it was decided that maybe Rosey needed to figure out this jumping thing on her own. Especially from the trot. So it was too the ring we went, all decked out in cute jumping boots, to try some free jumping.
One of the early attempts:
I’m feeling a little more like it maybe wasn’t just my monkey riding yesterday, and more like it might also have something to do with her coordination and experience level. Further attempts got a little better:
and finally, she does a little better (though, admittedly from the canter)
Right after I put the camera down she did a very nice trot jump and went through the in and out, as a bounce. Seems she got her confidence level up a little bit, anyway, which is the whole goal. A few more rounds of this and I’m thinking we’ll be in much better shape.
Coming up for Rosey- another possible field trip to a public event… stay tuned!
