First Jump!

Another good week of riding. Santana is making progress and every day he gets a little better.

We reached two milestones today:- One - I managed to get on without anyone holding his head and he just stood and waited. What good manners he has! and two - we did our first jump! Okay, it was only a log on the ground, but it was a jump all the same.

He's still heavy in my hands around the circle, but I'm sure he'll lighten up with time.

I love him to bits! Trouble is, I'm thinking that maybe things shouldn't be going quite so well, maybe something is going to go wrong at some point. But, no, those are just negative thoughts, banish them from my mind. My horse is gorgeous.
