It has only taken me three months but this week I was finally able to use my birthday presents!
It was a very exciting moment as apart from the odd hop over a small log we haven’t been able to jump at home since last autumn. My sister and I had a lovely time playing in the field and both ponies behaved very well. Galahad loves jumping anyway but even Cookster was putting in some very nice jumps and looking beautiful. Galahad is starting to take off further from the fences and is making a much better shape in general – I am very pleased with his progress.
We are starting to build up a proper little course now. Hopefully we will be able to move the logs in from the other field soon and then we can have some cross country jumps too. It is all very exciting!
