Galahad and I had another great lesson on Friday. Our flatwork is steadily improving and my instructor thinks Galahad is looking less stiff and much better in general.
Our jumping also went really well. We again jumped the barrel with no trouble and this time we jumped the big, scary, white filler which was a first for him. It is a real sign of growing up!
I followed that up with a lesson on my sister’s pony which didn’t go quite so well. His legs are not so coordinated when it comes to jumping and we completely messed up the striding in the double. He got his front legs tangled in the pole and we both fell down. Luckily we were both relatively unscathed, if rather sandy.
The ponies are having a visit from the back lady this week so she’ll be able to check he hasn’t damaged himself. If we had to fall we couldn’t have timed it better!
