Green Horse Jumping Day!

I played with both Note and Raven in the arena over a gymnastic grid today.  The first few times through were rough, but both horses figured it out and ended confident with good footwork.

Raven's natural form over fences makes her a super fun ride.  She and I are communicating well, she understands what I want from her, and we have tack that fits her.  The sky is the limit, now!

Here is a video of Raven's best run through the grid:

I particularly love how relaxed she is going into it.  No rushing, just thoughtful footwork.

Note also did a great job today.  He is so smart that each time through the grid was noticeably better than the previous time.  He went from this:

To this:

In just a few runs!  He of course needs work on his jumping form, his footwork, and his speed, but you have to start somewhere, and I was really pleased with how this brilliant horse thought his way through the puzzle.
