Here's me attempting to jump my old share horse, Bracken:

I'm not good at jumping, admittedly, but this was the most fun I'd had on horseback up to that point!

The last time I jumped a horse was during a ride-out last year, on an Irish Draft. It wasn't intentional!!

Cheers,

Daren

I jump my Belgian cross every once in a while- nothing too big yet, and mostly it's on the trail so the size has varied quite a bit.

He tries hard but the poor soul just isn't built for it- I bet we could compete at 2', and be absolutely done with it haha
