Jack and i have both settled in well to uni life. I look forward to start getting into a regular training programme with Jane and start identifying the areas we need to work on.
Having filled out some self evaluation forms for Jane to help identify the areas we need to work on, i concluded that overall jack and i both need to work on our anxiety when it comes to showjumping. He tends to get very stressed and uses speed and power to rush his fences. I have always struggled with nerves the most in showjumping and had lost a bit of confidence last winter when we both took a break from jumping. Whilst my confidence is growing there is still a long way to go.
I also identified that jack needs to become much shorter in his frame when exercising. If we can find some ways of encouraging him to shorten his frame in the flat work it will help improve his jumping as well!
