8th May, 2008 Jumps

I spent the morning at Hoplands Equestrian Centre watching Kelly Marks and Rosie Jones having their jumping lesson with Pat Burgess. Pat does some fabulous stuff with gridwork, encouraging the horses to really lift at the front and the riders to "plug in" with their seat bones until they feel the horse take off. It's at least a hundred years since I did any show jumping and now I am sorely tempted.
