I started with the just the bounce and only had to do it a few times before Buddy felt good. I put the third fence as just another vertical at first, but after a couple times thru made into the oxer. The distances were a little tight. I'm hoping that Buddy will start to get the concept of really sitting back on his hind end and I think he's slowly getting it.
I got one of the other girls to video one of our last time thru.
I was able to get a couple good still shots from the video. I really like how fierce and focused Buddy looks.
After I rode, Anna got on Phoenix, and I convinced her to start with just an cross rail then do just the bounce. She was pretty nervous but Phoenix handled it like a champ. The first time thru he seemed a little confused that there was a second fence and trotted over both. The next time he figured it out and jumped both nicely.
