This first picture is a demonstration of my unique way of mounting. I do NOT put a foot in the stirrup first (unless I'm mounting from the ground) - I hop on without in case of situations like the below. Spirit was excited and did not want to stand still. Had I had a food in the stirrup, that could have ended badly. We took a few moments to work on patience and obedience, then we were on our way to jumping fun.
Overall Spirit was really fantastic for our jumping lesson on Saturday. She only looked at one jump funny but we got no stops.
Spirit got a deluxe stall for the night inside the barn.
