I did jump Shiny this week, and I actually noticed a change in her. It's not been uncommon for her to break to trot on course, especially off a short turn. But this week, she actually listened when I closed my leg. And she's starting to carry herself better in general. Exciting when you can see these changes!
|This is a teeny tiny crossrail, but it's one of my favorite screen grabs. I just love her expression in this one.
I did shorten the out of the combination for this week's school and found something interesting there too. She has a terrible left drift (which I'm aware of, and we're working on it) and I think that's why we weren't making the distance very well before. She's literally cantering diagonally through there. Makes the distance a lot longer! But not having to worry about making it out, I was able to try and focus more on holding her straight, and letting her figure things out more.
|No, that is not in fact the center...
|This is Shiny, cantering over this 2' fence.
|I look super creepy here... but my hair looks nice!
