I had a riding lesson tonight, sharing the ring and the trainer with a more advanced student. Mr. Sensitive and I were trotting over poles, while Cowboy and his rider cantered over two low jumps.  It was fun to watch and I told Reanna, "I know I have to work up to it, but I! Want! To! Do! That! (Eventually)." This was a total surprise to me - I had never even thought about jumping before.

I was figuring another half dozen lessons or so, before I even got to think about taking the horse over anything. Instead she looked at us appraisingly and said, "Well, you aren't ready to do it at a canter, but you can try it at a trot."

So we did. He refused the jump the first two times, but then we got it. We went over both of them in series, several times, and I came home floating. If I can do that, I know I can survive my meeting tomorrow.
