We jumped in our second lesson. We started with a single crossrail, trotting and and cantering out both directions. Then we cantered it a few times before adding a second fence, another crossrail almost a figure-eight around the corner to the left and down the diagonal. Cupid landed on the left lead each time so we were able to keep cantering to the second jump. My first time I pushed Cupid and we ended up with a bit of a long spot - my trainer said I should have added a stride instead but said it was good that I thought about it and made a decision (even if not the best one) instead to just hanging on and hoping for the best. I am trying to be more proactive, and a better leader for Cupid! We added a third fence, kind of a rollback to a little brush box. I did a pretty good job sitting up and staying back until the jump, which is what I've been working on.
I will be gone on vacation next week, and my trainer will ride Cupid hopefully a few times. I'm interested to hear how he goes for her and see how he does with me when I get back!
