Well today was one of those rides where the horse did nothing wrong and the rider could do nothing right! I guess we have to have rides like this to put everything into perspective, although it is not as if I consider myself a particularly accomplished rider! Today the arena was dry enough to attempt a couple of canters although I didn't push it as we had quite a big slip yesterday and I don't want either of us to lose confidence plus it cannot be easy for Reilly to carry himself as well as me in canter. He was a good boy and did everything he was asked.
After we had ridden around for a while I popped him on the lunge to go over a few jumps - he seems to be getting the hang of jumping quite nicely.
Keeping off his back @ canterOops got in a bit close
