Hot Traffic (Mikey) has been steadily proving his natural talent on the flat and now with today’s introduction to jumping. He has the right attitude in his schooling and is enjoying himself in the process.
I like to begin jump school on the lunge line and allow youngsters to think and move on their own. Not having a rider on their backs gives them the opportunity to think independently and stay better balanced.
I continue to use trot poles weekly and keep building their footwork and muscle. With today’s wonderful results, I’m also confident that our next jump school will be in the tack. Brick by brick . . . and its starting to pay off.
