Well, Mally's education has progressed at a rate of knots! For a horse that has been under saddle only 2 months, she already feels like a far more advanced horse.
Jumps have always featured in her education to add a bit of variety, but have so far been tiny raised trot poles, so now it was time to step them up a bit.
Mally thinks jumping is the most fun ever, second only to jumping in canter! She becomes a little rubber ball and pings all over the place looking for her next jump! She does however need to become slightly less cocky, as she find everything farrrrrr too easy and tries to ignore me as much as possible! Whilst I like my horses to think for themselves, she does take it a bit far!
So far she has met doubles, grids, skinnies, angled fences, spreads and fillers with the same 'let's go' attitude!
So I am VERY pleased with how she is progressing, next week she will go XC schooling again, this time to do some jumps and then she has her very first competition on the 17th! A Walk & Trot Dressage Test at Vale View Equestrian, fingers crossed she copes with it in her usual manner!
