Talking Had A Great Day Playing Out On The CC Course Saturday!

A nice large group of us went schooling Saturday out at the Battle Creek Hunt Club, and had a great day!

It was our Coach, and then the rest of us. We all had a great time! I didn't do a whole lot of much, I've done that course so many times and I really wanted to Kids to get more out of the day and our Coach anyways.

Here are piccies:

Here's the big man, getting tacked up. The pad is really lime green, but the flash on the camera makes it look yellow for some reason. I did not dress him, my buddy did....so no laughing.

















These shots are blurry, my appologies.....

This is of Nelson and I doing Novice drop




This one is a Novice Ramp, 2'11"



Novice Log Pile:





And a Novice Trak fence:




And lastly, a shot of all of us at the end of the day:




Thanks for looking!

lol, the Lime Green was influenced by my 12 year old friend - the one with the purple and hot pink *wink*

Thanks mom2pride! I am thrilled with where my special boy is! We had a very rough spring and I couldn't be more happy with where he is physically and mentally :) :) He surely is a super hero!


Thanks Wren! I remember a few years back looking at them thinking how massive they looked - but now, they are quite small to me. When you school over Training level fences, doing Novice fences are nothing *wink* - same goes with schooling Novice fences when you are competing at BN....when it comes time ot jumping BN, they are piddly to you because you've been jumping bigger.

You 2 look like a great team! :)
And Nelson looks really good in lime green!
I wish I got to jump CC. I've only ever jumped over one CC fence (with the horse in my avi) and it was a tiny log. haha...

Those boots remind me of a superhero costume - you should get him a matching sleazy!
