I had a good jumping lesson this week. Earlier in the week I did a short jump school on my own, practicing a figure 8 over a slightly narrow, small vertical and getting pretty good at influencing which lead we landed on.
In my lesson, we started with that vertical and then added a course, turning either left or right on a bending line and continuing on. I was pleased that I kept thinking throughout, adjusting what I needed to in the moment. I felt like an active partner for Taco. The difference, Amy thinks, is probably my short jump schools on my own. I don't need to do much in those sessions to get a positive results in lessons.
