XC Academy | Jumping and upright and double of offset hedges

As you come round the corner set the horse up in a powerful coffin canter to be able to pop the upright so the horse doesn’t over jump on landing where the ground falls away and was uneven.

I had planned to ride a nice 3 strides but due to the undulating ground between the first two elements this didn’t happen and we chipped in a 4th, perhaps I didn’t have my leg on quite enough to travel through - this didn’t make for a pretty jump and left me with work to do for the 3rd element. I still achieved the two strides but not quite on the line that I had walked.  

The fence after this was a nice let up fence - open ditch and brush.
