Yesterday my pony and I took our first XC jumps of the season and we were both pretty thrilled – it couldn’t have been a more perfect or beautiful day to get back out there after a long winter. She was raring to go too; I actually don’t think I can recall a time where she was stronger in the bridle than she was yesterday. Despite being a little strong and maybe not being at her most maneuverable, it was a pretty cool feeling to be able to tell just how much she was enjoying running and jumping outside again! You and me both, pony.
