Countdown to Addington part 2

Good practice on Jazz this morning following a quick sit on last night in the gloom. Some pleasing work this morning. Things I'm working on are rhythm, lightness of my weight and hands and keeping the reins short. Also got to sit up and keep my legs still so he goes forward on his own. Some pleasing canter moments and left trot. Tending to rush in right trot I suspect anticipating the canter.

Found my fingers got very cold so in the end I had to stop. Cold and drizzling; not most auspicious start but not disappointed.
