|Jump chute day with the campers...Tillie clearly prefers going long|
|Mare's got hops!|
With that said, Dom came Friday to help us prepare for Waredaca and promote Tillie getting the nice jump that will get her landing softer and not so downhill and ready to take off. He started us with a simple low wide oxer to work on finding the right canter, distance and stride and slowly built it up to Training level.
Notice the "V" poles which helps Tillie jump more uphill with the front end. Dom raves about her tidy hind end so its about getting her better with the front half of her body now.
That portion went pretty well...then we added the grid/triple to let that do the work for me and allow us both to focus on ourselves and get out of the habits we tend to pin each other into:
Then we tried to put it all together
Needless to say there were ups and downs, but I am pretty proud of this horse...she has come so incredibly far this year!
