I logged into Facebook for about two seconds for something from work, and this was today’s memory, 8 years (!) ago.
Context: we were trying to school him to land and go forward, instead of land and quit because jumping was just SO EXHAUSTING. So my instructions were to rev him up as soon as he found his footing on the other side of the (BN sized) log pile.
(would going forward have been helped by me sitting back and loosening my elbows and generally not choking him? yes. yes it would have.)
