Jumping Lesson from Richard Waygood MBE
We started off cantering in a rhythm over poles then starting jumping an upright off a tight angle. The jump got bigger and bigger until it was 2”9 and Bobby was flying over it! We then jumped over a dog leg (which is when you jump a jump, turn on a slight angle and jump a second jump, almost like a wonky double!) and a spread. The horses were jumping very well by then and we finished off with a jump off an angle then a sharp turn and a spread. I was very pleased with Bobby and Richard was amazing!
We finished off by helping Richard adjust the jumps for the other groups and a well deserved cup of tea.
On Sunday 19th February I am going to the Wokingham Pony Club show jumping at BCA so I will blog about that soon!
Bye for now,
