My mare could jump clean but was dragging me around the course, and tight turns were a little sketchy. Paige watched us jump and explained that she was not using her back right over the jumps and that was why she was rushing. Within a few lessons, she taught me how to fix it and what I should feel. Now we can get around a stadium course sanely and our times are faster. My mare is so confident on course now! She (Paige) said smoothness first and speed comes automatically. I wasn’t sure about that because it felt slow, but she was right.
