Let your horse know they are doing good, talk to them, pat them on the neck, most importantly don't over do them. I will admit I have done this and it is a pain trying to reverse!
After some great weeks of fun and progress myself and Coco have hit an unexpected roadblock.
Excuse my french but holy F*#k, the next 15 minutes where the longest 15 minutes of my life, they were horrendous!!! The first 3 fences seem like such a blur now, but they were the only 3 fences
Over the last few months I've done a lot of work with Coco, specifically on her jumping. We're now at a place where we can really move forward so I wanted to take a look back on what we did to get here!
This was both Coco and Dante's first time to this arena and their first time out doing some proper showjumping schooling so we were both really looking forward to this experience.
The last time we went out for a hack together it didn't go very well so we decided it was time to give it another go. Both horses showed tremendous improvements. Give it a read for the full story!
I have this irrational fear of going fast downhill, Dante was quick enough to reassure me I had nothing to worry about, he popped over the tyres and over the hill with no hesitations
