Cross Country Schooling at the Kentucky Horse Park Today…..

Today I took Gus to Lexington (our home away from home) to meet Elissa for a cross country schooling at the Kentucky Horse Park.    It’s been a week and a half since I jumped Gus last, and I was just a little bit nervous about what we were going to have to jump today.

I met Elissa at my trailer so that I could borrow her rubber gag bit.  After watching us go at the KY Classique, Elissa thought I needed to try something that would keep Gus from rolling under while we are approaching a fence.   It seemed to work really well.  We worked on our corner questions and on keeping his head up upon approach.  I was happy with how well he jumped, and I was glad to jump a few of the fences I didn’t quite make it to at my last show.

We made it home tonight at almost 10pm .  It’s been a long day, and we were both glad to get back home.
