|Saturday trail ride|
Here are some more pictures and video. I didn't have my real camera along but luckily Emily and I both had our phones. A few notable firsts: Colby's first time over a jump ever! Charlie's first 2'6"! Woohooo! And Emily's first time really riding Charlie. The other first time was when he first moved to PA last summer and was still slightly crazy and minus one shoe lol.
|Colby is the best at kisses|
|Charlie's first 2'6" (video still). Bam! :D|
|Colby's first jump!|
1. Remember that staying out of Charlie's way while jumping does not mean forgetting to steer. Ooops!
2. When in doubt ask for the longer distance, Charlie likes it better, but practice seeing his strides to the base of the jump to get a more consistent good leaving point
3. Work on setting him up in the air to land on the correct lead
4. Practice flying changes, for when he doesn't land on the right lead
5. Start jumping bigger!!!
