Oh my gosh she LOVES to jump!!! Even on her lazy days when she's bored, as soon as she so much as SEES a jump off in the distance she instantly perks up and has been known to go off course on the flat to make a beeline for a jump it's HILARIOUS! One day my friends and I were just messing around in the arena and there was 1 single jump set up in the middle of the arena on a diagonal. Well, I was bareback and just trotting around and decided I was going to just ride her and let her go where she wanted, just to see what she would do. Well we were on the rail just going around and around, and the minute I quit telling her where to go, she turned and went straight to the jump and flew over it!!! I was laughing so hard!!!
She's such a sweetie :)
