Twister broke my camera so my media is terrible and limited. Like a phone video screenshot lol. Last time it was little Ranger who broke it and it cost over $100 to fix.
The day Twister killed my camera I had a little jump set up which we trotted and cantered to. He was great. Kept a level head. We got our distances and he didn't over jump. I was so happy.
The next day I had trot poles down and going left he could not calm down because that's how we came into the jump. He fought me in the corners and wanted to cut and rushed into the poles. It took most of our ride to get him to go through to the left without being a shit. Going right he glided.

So I've been trying to decide what to do today. My body is so exhausted from our workouts. I'm still struggling with some post partum issues, 15 months later..... But if I don't push I will never get out of this funk. Maybe tonight we can try cantering ground poles? Maybe another jump? Maybe put less of a bit in and do the trot poles and circles and cantering again. We've been going in the 3 ring because he got so tough and I don't have the core or leg to handle more than 10 mins of him dragging my ass around. I hate to compensate for my weak body like that but it is what it is and it's not like I'm yanking on his mouth.
2 more weeks until mom is here! Then my person and I are going trail riding and I can get mom to take media for me when I ride hahaha.
