Had to share - student's 1st over fences class :)

Our county fair started this week & one of my little students had her first show of the week today. They did their over fences show & she has only been riding english for a bit over a month & has went over a few teeny cross rails at my house. She's a brave one & wanted to participate every day of the fair so after much begging on her part, her mom & I caved. We let her sign up for BN Hunter Hack. Did a 15 minute impromptu lesson on form and here she is on her 21 yr old farm broke Haflinger mare going over her first "real" jump. Not perfection by a long shot, but she got it done. There were 19 in her class and she got 3rd! She was so proud of her pony & I was proud of her. Can't wait to watch her grow as a rider over the next few years

Thanks Serafina! It's been fun for me, I haven't ridden english or jumped in years. Something out of the norm for the working cow horse girl

Thanks kv! She's the sweetest darn thing! I try to buy her at least once a week. She'd never been rode english let alone looked at a jump, the old girl has a heart of gold and will do just about anything for her 10 year old rider.
