Ask @adriennesternlicht : Your jump-off at Wellington was breathtaking, were you 100% sure that Cristalline would not be scared or misunderstand in front of the bush? Are you used to training her over natural fences?

Hi Mark!

Thanks so much! I actually jumped the bush upon my entrance to the ring - I galloped straight in and rode aggressively over the hedge. Had she not reacted so well I probably would've been more tentative in my jump off. We don't train over natural fences but I've jumped her at Spruce Meadows and several other intimidating venues so I wasn't too worried! We really trust each other which definitely helps when jump off plans go awry.

Adrienne.
