Now the weather is less rainy the fields have dried up beautifully. Which of course means that we are able to school again. Not only that – we can jump!
It has been a good few months since the ponies have jumped so I like to start them off with pretty simple jumps and not rush into anything too big or complicated. Galahad loves to jump though – he really comes alive when we get the jumps out. In fact, he can get a bit too strong if I don’t watch it. On Thursday I kept him to a strict trot over the fences for serveral minutes as I had felt he wasn’t really listening to me.
We have had a lovely few sessions playing with the jumps and my sister has even been able to join us a couple of times which just adds to the fun. For one thing, it means we can have a go at pairs jumping which can be hilarious.
I am so much enjoying having the jumps out again!
