I may have also discovered Netflix on the Wii. But I've been doing other things. Lots of other things. Like....cool, trendy, real people things. Really.
SO! Who wants to hear about horses?! I have been riding, and yesterday Hubby got dragged out to take some videos since my camera doesn't do indoor pictures.
I have a tendancy to rush warm up when I know I'm going to jump, but I made myself take it slow and easy with Robert and I think it paid off. He was super calm over every jump and didn't give me any problems (though he did try to dive bomb Emily once. Bobby doesn't really care for dogs.).
I don't mind that he isn't totally confirmed with getting his leads between fences right now, as long as he picks up the right one after the line. We started off with both jumps as ground poles and trotted over them a few times each way first, taking care to avoid the also-jumping spotted Pig Dog who is trained for agility and thinks jumping is great--even when she's about to get run over by a big dumb horse who wants to eat her.
We moved the poles up to a xrail and a 2' vertical and went over from both directions a few times, then upped the xrail to a 2'3 vertical. We only did this one from the right twice and he was such a super star that we ended there.
