We sent her through the grid a few times. She got faster each time. She was particularly fresh (perhaps, too fresh?), and seemed to think that she was actually there to party in a Liberty class… Now, she just needs to slow down a little and then lift over the jump!

Funny, she doesn’t jump that quick and flat under saddle…
So, anyway, I haven’t had a chance to school with her over XC. I breathe funny at the thought… In a good way! I’m really looking forward to it!
In the meantime, she needs to do more work over courses. We haven’t had many opportunities for that… So, we’re considering attending a hunter/jumper schooling show!
I’m given to understand that she isn’t really the ideal hunter (at least, not at this point in time), but by entering the hunters, I can still get her the additional experience over fences. I am still uninitiated in the ranks of Hunter/Jumpers. Any advice/suggestions?
