    Default Boo went XC training! *pics*

    And she was fab

    The difference from when we went last year is incredible. The SJ we've been doing recently has really paid off. There was no silliness or over-excitement but she was really enjoying herself and took me to most of the jumps with bundles of enthusiasm.
    About 10 mins in I turned back into old me (pre-accident) and my confidence seemed to come from somewhere! I was cantering around and if she kept canter after a jump I'd just canter until I spotted one that looked reasonable and jumped it without even thinking about it! I only had one silly moment when I decided to jump something that turned out to be bigger and wider than anticipated and I stupidly pulled her out last minute. But we jumped it fine straight after
    We even cantered over a ditch with a pole over it! It was almost identical to the jump I fell at but Boo just didn't care about it which made me braver.
    She did some fab jumps and sharp turns straight over the next too which was great as she's still learning about turning in canter.

    If you can't tell I'm very happy So much so I had to make a whole thread for this instead of just putting it in her diary.

    I have lots of videos so I've picked out some stills to show.





    This was the bigger one that I had a wuss moment at (looks tiny here!):


    The steps:




    She loved this jump:


    And this was off a sharp dog-leg from the last photo:





    Smile because it happened.
