I gave Corie a brief rundown on what I've been working on with Zoe, and left them alone to warm up. After they warmed up, Corie and I talked about what Z still needs to work on; going forward at the canter and improving her bend and flexion.
I set some fences up at 2'-2'3" and let Corie work on whatever she wanted to. They did some single fences then went down the outside line and the bending line. Corie let Zoe figure out most of and tried to stay out her way and it was great to watch! Zoe looked so nice and steady. I put a couple of the fences up to 2'6" and except for once when they got too deep Zoe jumped each one very nicely. Corie really liked her, and said she thinks Zoe could go up to 3'! I'm hoping Corie will be willing to ride her a couple more times.
