Tried Finn in the new Neue Schule Waterford elevator/jumper bit – it worked really well. I just want to try one more bit to be sure we have the right amount of control without backing her off – the Neue Schule Universal bit is next on the list.
Was very pleased today, Finn jumped beautifully, especially considering she has hardly been worked for a couple of weeks due to the snow!! I was also doing a much better job with the rhythm, balance and lines.
At the end of the lesson Nick put my ‘Flicka Boots’ on just to see how Finn reacted to them. They did make her work more carefully behind so will give them a go for the SJ at Somerford on 9 March.
For Evening I need to do only about 6 warm up jumps before going into the ring. Try to get the last jump wrong – to make her a bit more respectful in the competitive round! Fit the Flicka Boots high and tight just before we go into the ring.
A good session today – Nick was very impressed with our improvement – a really pleasing session.
