4 of those miles were while we were burning off steam. ha! So we tried to catch up with them but because we took so long getting Dan to settle.... we ended up missing them. So then they did another loop and we got ahead of them. But we caught back up and headed to the ring. I decided to do a little bit of jumping.
And you know what?! It wasn't too bad. I was not thrilled with every part as he felt a bit behind my leg. But.. he did respond to my leg when I asked (I got the canter, checked my leg response and got forward... see Kelly, I listen and learn!) and he did what I asked. It just felt underpowered a little. But I was pretty proud of my position. I still need to tweak things but it wasn't horrible without too much effort on my part. :) Yay!
More Jumping Dan
And one more
So yep.. Fun day!
