It’s been a busy month with work, and difficult to fit in much decent exercise with Max, and on top of that, turnout has been restricted by the awful weather. Despite that, we had a brilliant jumping lesson yesterday: Max jumped well – he knows his job and loves it – I began to improve my position over the jumps (already improving but there’s always more one can do!), and he didn’t worry about brightly-coloured fillers or even 5-foot Bertie Bassetts! Learning more about Max’s character will hopefully give me an insight into how our partnership can develop most quickly, although I know that it will still take at least a year for us to get to know one another properly. We’re on the point of having a plan for the season to work to, but in the meantime we’re signing on for as much as we can do and look forward an every busier six months ahead!
