    Must admit I was a little nervous to start with as I really haven’t done much jumping at all, let alone going xc on a fairly green pony… but you know- that’s how I roll haha
    It didn’t take long for the nerves to disappear & start jumping some fairly sizable jumps mind, Hattie looked after me, we had a couple of refusals but no dirty stops or handbrake turns and to be honest the refusals were probably more my fault than hers – she was such a good pony!

    I did fall off going down a steep step… we walked down them a couple of times to start with as Hattie was unsure (don’t think she’d ever done them before) & then attempted trot… erm that wasn’t the best idea! Hattie stumbled, I flew off & almost had Hattie on top of me!! EEEEK! Pippa’s dad got some cracking photo’s! But I got back on & re-did them at walk… then carried on with further jumpies Feeling a somewhat stiff & sore today mind!

    Pippa & I swapped ponies for a bit too & Dido is just super, great for confidence building as she was just striding nicely up to the jumps & popping perfectly over them

    I’m going to be looking into jumping lessons as I definitely need some improvement; I seem to have a good start position but seem to lose it mid-jump & landing… I think I get left behind & then when Hattie was stretching up & over the jumps I wasn’t allowing enough rein length so I ended up pulling her in the mouth… which I HATED!!! Strangely though I didn’t seem to do it with Dido?! Hmmm… weird!

    It was a great day though & I learnt A LOT! Still a long way to go but I’m pleased with how the day went, jumping is my next ‘area’ to tackle!

    Youve just reminded me I need to call them! Message me on FB, need an updated list of no go dates cause I know you're jetting off again soon!
