Stop in the name of sexy, XC is FUN!

It has been a wonderful happy horse-centric weekend!

Finally, after weeks of searching, test riding, and going to every tack-related store in central ohio, I have found my saddle! My (slightly used) collegiate senior event will arrive by next weekend and I am pumped! Since we discovered it was my old saddle that was making Samson canter funny I have ridden in a bunch of different ones, and spent a good number of afternoons bareback. Because of this saddle adventure I actually worked up enough courage to jump a baby vertical bareback. Alas, no pic of it, but it was actually a lot easier than I thought it would be! Almost more natural. Mind you, it was only like 2', but still.

Also, yesterday was another XC schooling day and it was AMAZING! We went to Hearthstone Farm in Ohio, which used to be the site of a bunch of BN - Prelim events. I guess I have never been to an actual XC course before, just hunt fixtures and things. I have never seen so many different kinds of jumps all in one place. We were able to school ditches, a small water complex (Samson made it through without laying down in it, which is his favorite thing to do in water), all kinds of coops, banks, etc. We started small, just over some logs and tires, but soon progressed to more fun stuff. They have an Irish bank, which I swear is like a jungle gym for horses, and a neat log at the top of a bank. My trainer said that some of the jumps we went over were training level. Samson had a couple of stops, but in the end went over everything. We did have a scary moment over a hanging log. I think he thought climbing over it was easier than jumping it. I don't have pictures yet, but will add some as soon as I get them from one of the guys that was there. I was so proud of my boy by the time we left.

I do have a couple of pics from a recent stadium/dressage day...nothing too special, but thought i'd share.


Not really training, just having a fun canter

Haha. I love that your horse tries to roll when in water. Mine tries to drink. We schooled x-country one day and my horse tried to drink while we full out galloped in to the water. The only thing that kept me and him from both flipping over was my hauling him up on the reins. I feel bad but he still face planted the water and it would have been worse if I hadn't. Lol. The things horses do. :) sounds like you had fun though.
