Jumping lesson - Now with vid

Couldn't be prouder of Cally - Pony.

So today I trailered Cally alone to a jumping clinic at an equestrian centre with a full set of jumps. Normally I like others to be with me when I'm towing for moral support and to help load etc but my friend cancelled so I went by myself.
At the lesson we were in at the deep end with a set of 4 canter poles which turned into a 4 jump grid. This was to help her lengthen her stride and stay straight.

Once Cally was jumping those nicely we did a water tray with panels over the top and a skinny and some uprights. Then a whole course which included the 4 jump grid and all the 'scary' jumps we had practiced.

So we basically did a whole course in which each individual jump was harder than anything we have jumped before. I was beaming at the end and now I'm totally knackered. As, no doubt, is Cally.

My next ambition is an arena eventing comp in December. Onwards and upwards.....

The instructor was really positive about her - said she had a wonderful temperament and was so genuine and willing. She is getting me to jump fillers etc while Cally is so young so that in future she'll not be stressed by anything 'new' as she'll have seen it all before. They scare me but she seems pretty relaxed about them!

She looks to be doing brilliantly, what a clever pony and you should feel proud of how far she's progressed. Definitely a super star! x
