Hell, he overjumps everything by at least a foot anyways, so it's not like height should be a remote problem for us.
But it was. For me that day, it just wasn't going to happen. I mean, yes, I could have jammed myself around that course and made it through the day, but that wasn't going to build my confidence. It was just going to unnerve me and keep setting me up to fail.
So instead we broke things down and made everything smaller.

Do I need to ride straight and more forward and have a better plan? Yes, absolutely. I can nitpick all the things I need to do better, but for me, right now, this is progress and I am happy with it. I was able to ride my horse forward and put my leg on and be committed to my jumps and give him some release. That's a great start.
I'm happy with how I rode and happy with my horse and we're getting through this together.
