Nothing like a holiday weekend for getting in extra time in the saddle during daylight hours. Eli got Monday and Tuesday off. Then we got back to work on Wednesday. I think having more purposeful flat work on a regular basis is paying off over fences (duh). I even took Eli out for a relaxed sunset ride on Thanksgiving since we had an early meal. Friday, we did a short jump school:
Eli felt so easy and adjustable. If canter-walk transitions is what it takes to get that then so be it.
We had our regular lesson on Saturday, but more about that tomorrow (or maybe not until Thursday if I can’t get the video sufficiently chopped up before then). I hope everyone who celebrated Thanksgiving had a wonderful holiday weekend!
