Still a trot fence, but 3′. Hemie had no problem.
Uphill to the tube as we say goodbye to precious daylight!
Last night’s lesson we had a different fabulous exercise: a figure eight with angled jumps. They were both verticals (fairly close together – set 3 strides apart) that started off around 2’3″ but ended at a solid 3′. Hemie was great with the angles, was very keen to jump, and it was a great exercise for me to sit up and ride immediately following the jump. The first few rounds, I used the whole arena, then trainer corrected me to make tighter turns so I had to get my act together quickly! Plus we got lots of lovely lead changes too.
