lol - eons ago.

Actually, when I was a little girl I used to pretend to be a horse by being on my knees and hands. I remember making my hands fists to mimic the hooves and I would "canter" around the house.


yeah..I was a dork.

I did that too when I was child. I think the highest "fence" was around 50-70cm and that was pretty high because I was only something around 130-140cm then .

Haven't pictures about it, sorry.

not only did I pretend I was a horse, but I subjected my dogs to go over them as well.
My lab used to have a stall, and a saddle, a blanket and even a bridle! (no bit though)

ahh the good ol' days!

When I was a kid I swear I was half horse. I spent as much time on two legs as four. I could jump (4-legged.... 2 legged/2 armed??) 3' or more - I'm amazed my wrists aren't absolutely shot!
Two-legged the highest I jumped was 3'11" - I have it on video somewhere! I could easily jump 3'6" from a standstill.
