Cross country pics of my boy!

I took Excel cross country schooling a few times last week, and yesterday we had our Pony Club rating (we passed! Now officially D3s ). We trailered with my friend whose daughter is in our Pony Club, so her husband got a few pictures of us. Enjoy!

Schooling 5/25. We jumped a few Novice jumps, but didn't get any pictures of them:

Are you using a five point collar? I am looking at new breast collars.... mainly because I could swear that my 3 point makes him uncomfortable. Do you like yours?!! (great pics, by the way. You both are sooooo brave!!!)

Thanks! Oxer, it's actually just a typical breastplate. It's an Ovation, bought it used from someone on Craigslist.

Very Cool! Congrats on your D3, that's a big step from D2.

It did seem like a bigger step in what they asked for, but the rater was pretty understanding. He couldn't pick up his right lead, so in warmup I was explaining in-depth some of the warmup exercises I was doing to get him to flex and get his weight off of his inside shoulder to free it up for the right-lead canter. She said that once I can work with him on that canter, we will actually be above D3 standards, so that was nice to hear. In the jumping portion he got them every time, silly boy

Looks like lots of fun! I was hoping to start very low level this year, but.... :)
Very cute horse, and looks very willing too.

Congrats Excel is gorgeous and it looked like fun. I just have to say I love the pony's mane in the background lol.

KV, you should go for it! If you have XC grounds locally, call and see when they have open schooling days. It's a great way to be introduced to eventing without the pressure of a hunter pace.

No arguing on my side! I just can't ride at the moment (therefore my comment), but as long as I start again I definitely will give it a try. We are lucky to have 2 free smaller jumping XC courses rather close (both in local parks).
