    First Day Schooling Outdoors!

    Had a blast! It was a great time! Lots of laughs and plenty of fun!

    Here are the boys while we were tacking up:

    After our warmup and after our breif review of the dressage tests, we got started on jumping:

    Then we started to work on a makeshift ditch, made from tarp. The first approach was halarious as some of you saw! LOL. Then he just started trotting over it. After our horses were accustomed to the makshift ditch, our coach turned it into a Coffin.

    Then we reversed the coffin, instead of jumping in, we jumped out:

    And then merged out onto the Barns "Field Hunter" course. Small fences, but still fun!

    Here we are out on the "CC" course. I say that in quotations because they aren't real CC fences.

    Looks like you had a lot of fun. It's great to see how good Nelson looks after his scare over the winter. I can't wait for that great weather to get here on Thursday. Is that the new saddle?

    Thanks everyone!

    I am so proud of how far Nelson has come since his stint in January. He is back to being that horse that is full of energy, enthusiasim and spark!

    We just schooled today out at the Hunt Club over their CC course, it was alot of fun! Working hard on our conditioning. Our first HT is in May, so we're getting ready for that.

    Oh - and YES that is my new saddle :) The Harry Dabbs Origiona Event. LOVE IT!
