Progress, One Jump at a Time

Progress, One Jump at a Time

Since our last lesson with InstructorA, I’ve made it a point to focus on improving the quality of Raglan’s canter. I’ve been stretching him down into the bridle, letting his head drop so that his neck is level and then using my leg to lift up his belly. Right now his head gets too low, but I can feel him getting stronger and soon I should be able to start raising his poll up while keeping his back engaged.

In the mean time, I’ve been setting up jumps at least once a week. Spending more time jumping has been good for us; I’m feeling pretty confident over 2’0″ with Raglan!

My main goals are 1.) no refusals, 2.) land softly from jumps, and 3.) PLEASE HAVE BRAKES. Raglan’s been going above and beyond to meet those expectations. I can’t wait to be in a position to take him to another schooling show for some actual over fences classes! 💓
