The regular Saturday lesson was much less chaotic than the Saturday before. And also less work, primarily because of the heat. Even at 10am, I think it was in the 90s. Everything felt very melty in general.

We worked on the primary theme of staying organized on the other side of the fence. Eli and I often land in a bit of a heap and it takes me a few strides to recover. Which is not desirable by any stretch. We trotted a few warm up fences first, my trainer emphasizing that I need to land riding.

We wound up just sticking with trotting in and cantering out of some lines and after a few rounds of that I personally had had enough of the heat, so undoubtedly Eli had, too. We don’t have anything planned for August, but I would still like Eli to stay in condition for a few things we have on the calendar for September. Maybe this coming Saturday we can do a little more!

  1. OMG I totally feel your pain. I swear I think “we made it over the jump” and then just forget that I need to do anything on the backside. Whoops! You guys look great and are a great reminder to me that the jump is more than an approach
