Like I mentioned, just last week I had resigned myself to being an awesome crossrail rider for a little while longer to focus on confidence building.
Not to be. After warming up on Wednesday, Diane set a few 2'6" verticals and said "off you go."
Then on Saturday, Ali set a 2'6" 8 stride line, vertical in and oxer out. Coupled with a long ride to a 2'6" brush box. And said "off you go." By the time the lesson ended we had added in three rollbacks- one to a "stone" wall and one to the oxer out of the line.
Sunday we jumped a "brick" wall (which you can see in the background of the photo below and Ellie didn't hesitate. Then through the one to two to one line with a purpose!
We're like jumping machines! Now I just need to get my heels down!
